Molly M. Daughety, Bethany T.Samuelson Bannow

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In developing countries, the leading cause of maternal death is postpartum hemorrhage, and in industrialized nations, the leading cause of maternal death is venous thromboembolism. Furthermore, there are several other hematologic maladies that may present additional challenges in maintaining the health and well-being of the mother and child during pregnancy, delivery, and the postpartum period. In this chapter, we discuss the hematologic disease states that most commonly complicate pregnancy and offer insight into the diagnosis and management of these conditions.
