Successful pregnancy in a 44-year-old haemodialysis patient.

A 44-year-old patient had been treated by intermittent haemodialysis for almost three years when she presented with a 28-week pregnancy.

Successful delivery of a healthy but small infant was achieved by Caesarean section at 36 weeks. The successful outcome of this pregnancy was attributed to close control of the haemoglobin concentration and blood chemistry, and to increased frequency of dialysis.

The relative value of various chemical tests of fetal maturity in the presence of maternal renal failure are discussed.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
