Abstract: Asthma is the most common chronic condition encountered in pregnancy. Due to lack of evidence on the adverse effects of asthma medication during pregnancy, there is persistent concern regarding use of asthma-related medication throughout the pregnancy, management of exacerbations and asthma management during labour. Several respiratory-related physiological changes are said to occur during pregnancy which could possibly worsen or improve asthma, and asthma as well as its treatment can affect pregnancy outcomes. The aim of this paper is to summarize current literature findings on clinical management issues encountered in this cohort of patients.
