Pregnancy after transplant
Kim Uccellini, pediatric kidney recipient, with her daughter and husband
The first woman to become pregnant after a transplant was reported in 1963. Since that time, there have been numerous successful pregnancy outcomes in many types of transplant recipients. However, pregnancy can put the mother, baby and transplanted organ at risk.
I’ve lived more healthy years now due to my transplant that years sick when I was a child. Years that I wouldn’t have if a donor family from Tennessee hadn’t donated their son’s organs. My outcome may not be typical, but it’s possible.
