Pregnancy after renal transplantation is not uncommon, but there are few large studies to assess the risks. This studied captured all pregnancies among renal transplant recipients in the UK between 2007 and 2009 and compared to matched controls. Rates of pre-eclampsia, preterm delivery and small gestational size were higher than controls, but most pregnancies were successful.
