For women with end-stage organ failure, transplantation is an established therapeutic option. Pregnancy after solid organ transplantation is no longer uncommon, especially with the recent advances in transplantation surgery and the availability of newer immunosuppressants. This article will review preconceptional counseling, common pregnancy complications, prenatal and intrapartum considerations, outcome by organ, immunosuppressant therapies, and neonatal outcomes based on data available from case series and voluntary registries. Some recommendations are provided to assist in the management of pregnancies after solid organ transplantation.
