The obstetric and gynaecological management of women with inherited bleeding disorders--review with guidelines produced by a taskforce of UK Haemophilia Centre Doctors' Organization

Haemophilia. 2006 Jul;12(4):301-36. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-2516.2006.01314.x.


The gynaecological and obstetric management of women with inherited coagulation disorders requires close collaboration between obstetrician/gynaecologists and haematologists. Ideally these women should be managed in a joint disciplinary clinic where expertise and facilities are available to provide comprehensive assessment of the bleeding disorder and a combined plan of management. The haematologist should arrange and interpret laboratory tests and make provision for appropriate replacement therapy. These guidelines have been provided for healthcare professionals for information and guidance and it is also intended that they are readily available for women with bleeding disorders.
