Brief description Asthma is the most common complication to affect pregnancy and it worsens with pregnancy contributing to an increased incidence of morbidity and mortality for the baby. We think we can improve the health of the pregnant, asthmatic mothers and prevent a poor outcome for the baby by empowering asthmatic mothers to self manage their disease through education in an antenatal setting. We will assess whether antenatal asthma education and management is a cost effective approach to managing this disease during pregnancy.
