Taking Copaxone while pregnant

I have found out I am 4 weeks pregnant. I was diagnosed with MS in 2021 but my consultant said I did not need to take DMDs until now. I have an appointment to start Copaxone in a few days time. Now I am pregnant I am really scared of starting the treatment and hurting my baby.

Does anyone have any experiences of taking Copaxone while pregnant.


This from the professor of neurology at Barts and might help put your mind at rest.

"A large amount of data from MS pregnancy registries and post-marketing surveillance indicates no increased risk of significant congenital anomalies or spontaneous abortions (miscarriages) after exposure to interferon-beta or glatiramer acetate. Most neurologists are, therefore, comfortable with their female patients falling pregnant on interferon-beta or glatiramer acetate, continuing the treatment through pregnancy and allowing their patients to breastfeed on these agents.
