Clinical Management Studies

Preconception and Pregnancy in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Registry Research Study​

We are developing a Preconception and Pregnancy in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Registry here at Mount Sinai Hospital.   This prospective cohort study will follow women with IBD to help better understand IBD and pregnancy and provide better care. Patients can either enroll in the study and complete online questionnaires or patients can enroll in the study but chose to not complete any questionnaires and instead allow the research team to document outcomes from their medical records only.

If patients choose to complete questionnaires, participation will involve the completion of online questionnaires throughout preconception, pregnancy and post partum time periods (with study time points being completed ahead of clinic visits). Most study time points are expected to take between 15-30 minutes and all questionnaires can be completed online at a time that is convenient for you. The questionnaires overlap with clinical questions so they can be completed ahead of clinic visits and the research team would then share your results with Dr. Huang to aid in your clinical care.

If you would like to participate in this study or have further questions, please email Katie.O’Connor@sinaihealth.ca or preg.ibd@sinaihealth.ca
