Kadir RA, Davies J, Winikoff R, et al. Pregnancy complications and obstetric care in women with inherited bleeding disorders. Haemophilia 2013;19:1–10. doi: 10.1111/hae.12269

This articles focuses on women with inherited bleeding disorders (IBD) and their need for the input of a multidisciplinary team to improve their outcomes of pregnancy. Currently, there is a current lack of data on the risk of miscarriage and bleeding complications during pregnancy. However, a clear association has only been established in women with fibrinogen and factor XIII deficiency. In fact, in the affected neonate with severe bleeding disorders such as haemophilia, the risk of head bleeding is significant, and the appropriate management of labour and delivery has an important impact on reducing risk.
