Pregnancy risks associated with kidney problems?

Depends on severity. Risks are low if kidney fuction is reasonable & should be discussed with nephrologist & OB dr. Kidney infections/pyelonephritis are associated with pre-term labor so baby comes early & is small & may need nicu care but usually ok. High infant mortality associated with pregnancy for women on dialysis, < if dialysis started after onset of pregnancy.Risk after kidney transplant low if function good.
Significant effects. Pregnancy is a burden on the kidneys. So, if you have a chronic kidney disease, your kidneys are at risk to get worse. It is best to not get pregnant before discussing it with your nephrologist and obstetrician.
