The Stanford IBD and Family Program was established in 2018 by a group of Stanford physicians, inspired by their patients with IBD who face unique challenges during life’s exciting journeys of motherhood and fatherhood. Our main objective is to help patients achieve their goals of having healthy babies while staying healthy themselves. We strive to improve patient outcomes and advance our understanding of the interaction between IBD, fertility and pregnancy.
