Michelle Petri, MD, looks back to one patient during her early days in clinic at Johns Hopkins. The patient was pregnant and living with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), concerned that she would need to terminate the pregnancy as had previously occurred, but Dr Petri had a different perspective.
Citing the success of high-risk pregnancies, Dr Petri assured her patient that she was willing to follow her through the pregnancy. To date, The Hopkins Lupus Pregnancy Center has over 700 successful births in women living with SLE.
