Hematologic complications are relatively common in pregnancy. Furthermore, many chronic hematologic disorders require special surveillance and intervention in pregnancy. In this brief review, the author discusses common nutritional anemias in pregnancy. She reviews the disorders of hemoglobin synthesis and the need for early genetic counselling and prenatal diagnosis, as well as the special requirements and problems affected patients encounter in pregnancy. An overview of the frequent causes of thrombocytopenia in pregnancy is given and an approach suggested to the management of both the mother and the fetus. An approach is also presented to the management of women at risk for thrombosis in pregnancy, a particularly vexing and controversial problem. The risks of the various forms of anticoagulation are reviewed. Finally, a brief review of obstetrical hemorrhage is presented along with some guidelines useful in its management.
