Pregnancy is associated with physiologic changes that affect the hematologic system. Understanding the impact of pregnancy on bleeding, coagulation, and thrombotic disorders is paramount for optimal management of affected patients. This session, which is part of the Friday Scientific Workshop on Hematology and Pregnancy, will focus on recent insights on the role that the distinctive biology of pregnancy plays on the development, diagnosis, clinical course, and treatment of these conditions. Dr. Michelle Sholzberg from the University of Toronto will present an approach to management of delivery and the postpartum period in women with bleeding disorders, while Dr. Ruchika Sharma will review the diagnosis and management of fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia and Dr. Leslie Skeith will provide an update on the laboratory aspects of the diagnosis and treatment treatment of venous thromboembolism in pregnancy. The workshop’s interactive format will feature brief didactic presentations from speakers on key topics, followed by a question and answer session.
