What can a pregnant women take for migraines?

Migraines pose a difficult situation in pregnant women, because everything with the potential to help mom has a potential to also affect the fetus. Because each situation is very different from another, including medical history, additional medications/vitamins/supplements as well as the gestational age of the fetus, there is no across the board answer to this question. All pregnant women should be seeking the advice of their obstetrician for the health of their baby. Another medical professional that may be very helpful is a Migraine and headache specialist who is board certified in headache medicine and has received extra training in the diagnosis, treatment and management of Migraine and headache patients.
