The pregnancy in women underwent liver transplant is successful in most of cases, although it is qualified as a high risk pregnancy. The objectives of present study are to describe the pregnancy evolution in women previously underwent to liver transplant and to determine the development of obstetric complications and the evolution of liver graft. A retrospective and descriptive study was conducted in 3 patients underwent liver transplant finishing pregnancy between January, 2006 and December, 2009. The variables analyzed were: interval between the transplant and the pregnancy, obstetric backgrounds, obstetric incidences, immunosuppressive treatment during pregnancy and graft evolution. In general, the evolution of the three patients during pregnancy and puerperium were satisfactory, time between the transplant and the pregnancy onset was higher than 2 years, there were slight obstetric incidences as high blood pressure in one of the patients, the end of pregnancy was at-term in the three patients with cesarean section due obstetric indications, the three babies had appropriate weight birth and Apgar scores; the liver function remained normal in two patients and in one of them the liver enzymes were normal adapting the immunosuppression. The immunosuppressive treatment was applied using anticalcineurinic drugs (Tracolimus or Cyclosporine) in monotherapy during pregnancy. The post-transplant interval over 2 years for the onset of pregnancy and graft stability lead to a good evolution of pregnant.
