Abstract

The clinical literature notes that pregnancy has become an expected benefit of solid organ transplant. Establishing “best practices” in the management of this particular transplant population requires careful consideration of the ethical dimensions, broadly speaking, of post-transplant pregnancies and these women's lived experiences. In this article, we present the current clinical and social science post-transplant pregnancy research. We specifically address the psychosocial and ethical issues surrounding preconception counseling and post-transplant health quality of life and mothering and suggest areas for future research.
