A successful renal transplant in women of child bearing age is on an increase in recent years. A successful renal transplantation reverses the altered reproductive and sexual function of the recipient. The resumption of regular menstruation and ovulation correlate closely with the level of function achieved by the graft (1-3). These parturients present a unique challenge with their altered physiology and immunosuppression associated with the desire to have a normal child, to the obstetrician, the nephrologist and the anaesthesiologist. The anaesthesiologist is called to meet the challenges of the management at parturition for a successful outcome.
