In brief: APLAs

The presence of aplas or antiphospholipid antibodies increases the risk of fetal growth retardation and fetal death in utero.
They also increase the risk of deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary emboli, and arterial thrombosis. Women who have aplas are usually treated with anticoagulants, for example lovenox, (enoxaparin) during and after the pregnancy.

In brief: Many and severe.

Antiphospholipid antibody syndrome is very rare but very severe when it occurs during pregnancy.
It can lead to fetal loss, poor fetal growth, severe preeclampsia, require preterm birth and cause maternal thromboembolism, stroke or even death from coagulation disorders. Maternal-fetal medical care is required at experienced hands.
