Experience with 12 expectant mothers with DVT from 1978 to 1983 supports heparin therapy. After early experience with four patients with various doses of intravenous and subcutaneous mini-heparin both in and out of the hospital, we have selected a program of outpatient, self-administered adjusted subcutaneous heparin. There has been no maternal or fetal mortality. There have been no serious bleeding or post-phlebitic complications, although two patients have had flare-ups of superficial phlebitis during the follow-up over the last four-and-a-half years. There have been three subsequent pregnancies, two of which were first trimester miscarriages and one uneventful term delivery of a normal infant.
