Relevance to General Practice

The haematological system adapts to pregnancy by increasing trilineage haematopoiesis and inducing a ‘pro-thrombotic’ state. A thorough understanding of these changes is central to the prompt diagnosis and appropriate management of many haematological complications of pregnancy. In addition, the investigation and management of haematological conditions which are not specific to pregnancy must be refined in order to minimise the risks to the developing fetus.
