Eligible subjects will be pregnant women residing in the United States or Canada who have had any exposure to etanercept for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), juvenile RA, ankylosing spondylitis (AS), psoriatic arthritis (PsoA) or psoriasis (PsO) at any time during the first trimester of pregnancy. This is defined as the period between the first day of the last menstrual period (i.e., within two weeks of conception) up to and including the 12th week after the first day of the last menstrual period.
