Definitions of specific disorders and differential diagnoses are reviewed, along with treatment options and pregnancy-associated morbidities. Headache is reviewed first including the common primary headaches migraine and tension-type headache. The disabling neurological disorders—multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and spinal cord injury are grouped due to common morbidities affecting pregnancy. Finally, Bell palsy is also reviewed. © 2012 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
