Is it dangerous for women with von Willebrand's disease type 2A to get pregnant?

I am doing some research on this hereditary bleeding disorder and I'm trying to find the answer to this question. I'm curious to know if it is too dangerous for women with von Willebrand's disease type 2A (the more serious form of the disease) to endure childbirth. Also, should women with this disease avoid getting pregnant because it is frequently passed down through parents to children?

Whether or not someone chooses to have a baby due to the fact that they may pass on the gene is totally up to them. I won't go so far as to say they are not allowed or shouldn't do it. If they choose to do it, it's their choice and I won't judge them at all.

As for getting pregnant, and giving that's completely possible. Many women with von Willebrand's actually show some improvement in their condition because the hormones during pregnancy increase many clotting factors. Also, natural birth is completely possible.

I found this for you:


There are some dangers, but if the OBGYN and hematologist work together it can be managed quite effectively.

Do a search on Google for "von Willebrand's disease and pregnancy" and you will find more information than you'll know what to do with.  (+ info)

Type A mom can have a healthy type B baby. Why doesn’t the baby develop a hemolytic disease type of response?

I understand Hemolytic disease only pertains to Rh antigen, BUT I don't understand why there isn't a similar type of reaction when a mom is carrying a baby of a different ABO blood group.

Here's a great website which describes blood typing in detail. I hope it helps!
