A comparative study of the outcome of the first three pregnancies in 165 epileptic women evidences the need to consider the difficulties met in previous pregnancies to evaluate the likelihood of major risks in the following pregnancies : the incidence of such risks is increased when there have been problems during a previous pregnancy. The statistically evidenced relation between risks and the rank of pregancy allows to discover one of the biases introduced in research on the outcome of pejorative pregancies which collects data without always relating it to the women, to the rank of pregancy and to the outcome of pregancy.
