Two cases of maternal vegetative state after motor vehicle accidents are presented. Aggressive support allowed the prolongation of both pregnancies into the third trimester without neonatal compromise. After initial medical stabilization in intensive care unit environments, both patients were treated in a labor and delivery setting with consultative supports from various subspecialists.
