Friend went into hospital and was diagnosed with saddle thrombosis. With bloodwork found out she is pregnant. What are her risks and miscarriage?

Saddle embolis: Can be immediately fatal so she is very luck to be alive. Her doctors can give her the best answers to these questions since they have all the details. Good luck.
