Pregnancy and breast cancer

Published: 07/11/2014

Being diagnosed with breast cancer is frightening. If you are pregnant, it will be a particularly worrying and distressing time for you and your family. The team of doctors, nurses and midwives looking after you will support you through your pregnancy and give you information about support that you might find helpful.This leaflet is meant to complement the support you will get.

This information may help if you are pregnant and have breast cancer or are worried that you may have. You may also find it helpful if you have had breast cancer and are thinking about having a baby. It may be useful too if you are a partner, relative or friend of someone who has been in this situation.

This information has been developed by the RCOG Patient Information Committee. It is based on the RCOG Green-top guideline Pregnancy and breast cancer (March 2011).
