There are several challenges to a successful pregnancy outcome in patients with lupus in India including unplanned pregnancies, myths and false beliefs related to lupus pregnancies and poor access to dedicated care. Pregnant lupus patients are best managed by a multidisciplinary team consisting of rheumatologist, obstetrician, and other relevant specialists. In this narrative review, we have appraised available literature on the outcomes of pregnancy among lupus patients in India, highlight the lacunae in the care of such patients, and also present perspective of this issue based on our own experience.
