Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD) and Pregnancy: Assessment and Clinical Management
Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hEDS) and Hypermobile Spectrum Disorder (HSD) are estimated to affect 6 million (4.6%) pregnancies globally per year. As such, cases of hypermobility in maternity services should no longer be considered rare, only rarely diagnosed. Learn more about the potential impact of hypermobility on pregnancy, how to screen for it and clinical management. Useful hypermobility screening tools and decision-making matrices for birth workers, relative to a patient’s degree of hypermobility, will be outlined.
