Pregnancy is associated with many physiological changes in the renal system. Pregnancy can alter the course of some renal diseases as also pre-existing renal diseases may affect pregnancy outcomes. Pregnancy may be complicated by hypertension which warrants proper management. Acute kidney injury may complicate pregnancy. With chronic kidney diseases on the rise, it is important for the physician to be aware of management of pregnancy in these patients. Kidney transplant recipients have their unique set of problems and management of these patients poses a challenge for the physician. Hence, this review highlights the management of pregnant patients with renal diseases including issues related to dialysis and transplantation.
