Can someone with epilepsy have a baby?

Many women with epilepsy can become pregnant and have a healthy baby. However, women should tell their doctors if they plan a pregnancy, as close monitoring is needed. Medications may also need to be changed as certain antiepileptic (anti-seizure) medications can be harmful to the unborn baby.
