In brief: It depends...

There are different genetic disorders that can put a woman at risk of getting a blood clot during pregnancy.
For anyone, the risk of blood clot during pregnancy is about 20 per 10, 000 women per year. Depending on the type of clotting disorder you have, your doctor may prescribe medications to help prevent blood clots. These are safe in pregnancy and should be continued for weeks after delivery.
