Pregnancy and Chronic Kidney Disease

  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) complicates a pregnancy leading to increased preterm deliveries, intra-uterine growth retardation, and higher rates of pre-eclampsia. Through comprehensive care and knowledge of normal pregnancy as well as the physiology of the diseases that cause CKD, we can deliver the optimal care to our patient and her baby. Our physicians have experience at dealing with patients with CKD who are pregnant and draw on experts throughout the university to provide optimal care.
