Abstract

Sickle cell disease is a member of a family of genetic disorders involving abnormal hemoglobin. The most prevalent hemoglobinopathy is sickle cell anemia resulting from the homozygous SS genotype. Pregnancy is a serious burden to women with sickle hemoglobinopathies, especially those with hemoglobin SS disease. Pregnancy usually results in an increased frequency of sickle cell crises. Infections and pulmonary complications are common. Maternal mortality has decreased dramatically over the years because of improvements in medical care, but remains high.
