Occasionally, pregnancy can occur in patients receiving hemodialysis due to chronic kidney disease. Despite successful pregnancies reported in the literature, high complication rates and progression of renal disease can be observed. Major risk factors are maternal age, type of renal disease, dialysis prior to pregnancy, age at the time of dialysis, dialysis modality, hemoglobin, blood urea nitrogen, creatinine levels during pregnancy and dialysis dose. Improvements in dialysis technology and patient follow-up and multidisciplinary approach in the last years have lead to higher rates of fertilisation and succesful pregnancies with live births.
