  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    In cases of ITP, care of the mother centers on minimizing her risk of bleeding during pregnancy and childbirth. Check platelet counts regularly throughout gestation to verify that they are in an acceptable range. Conservatively, platelet counts should be checked monthly during pregnancy (platelet counts should be checked at least every trimester even in completely stable patients).

    Spontaneous bleeding seldom occurs if the maternal platelet count is greater than 20,000/µL; therefore, treatment is not indicated in the absence of bleeding unless the platelet count falls below this level. Intraoperative or intrapartum bleeding complications are unusual if the platelet count is greater than 50,000/µL; therefore, administer treatment if the platelet count is less than this prior to delivery.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
