Can a woman with kidney transplant get pregnant?

In brief: Yes

It happens a number of times every year, and can be done safely.
However, the potential mother should discuss this closely with her transplant team. There are certain risks to the mother-recipient as well as the child (small for gestational age). This is characterized as a high risk pregnancy. The decision to go forward should be weighed against the actual kidney function of the mother.

However, if you are on any medications due to the transplant or to suppress your immune system, you need to discuss your options with your OB and transplant doctors.

I normally ask my patients to wait until one year after transplant.
