Pediatric kidney transplantation part 165



Deciding to have a baby

This is a very big decision for anyone. As patient with a kidney transplant, you have extra things to think about, such as the impact on your own health.

If you decide it’s the right time for you to have  a baby, there are many things to think about. You need to talk to your transplant doctor and nurse before you start trying to become pregnant. You should also see an obstetrician (specialist in pregnancy) who has taken care of other transplant patients.

For women, it’s best to wait at least one or two years after transplant to become pregnant. By the time, you are taking a lower dose of your transplant medicine, and your graft function is stable.
