Women with sickle cell disease have a high risk of complications during pregnancy, according to new research from French Guiana. The findings also show that women with the more severe SS-type sickle cell disease are more likely to have premature babies, and to suffer health problems themselves, than women with less severe disease types.
The study, “Pregnancy in Sickle Cell Disease Is a Very High-Risk Situation: An Observational Study,” published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology International, underscores that pregnant women with sickle cell disease should be supervised by a multidisciplinary team that includes primary care physicians, obstetricians, and a specialist in sickle cell disease.
