As the population of paraplegic women of child-bearing age increases, the psychiatrist may be more frequently called on to care for pregnant women. Pregnancy in a paraplegic patient can be accompanied by many serious medical problems including autonomic dysreflexia, anemia, decubitus ulcers, urinary tract infections, and premature labor. This is a case report of a successful pregnancy in a spinal cord injured woman who was managed at a rehabilitation center throughout her entire pregnancy, despite developing the multiple complications described above.
