Jakarta – Mother, have you ever heard of hemophilia? Hemophilia is a rare disorder when our blood doesn’t clot the way it should because we don’t have enough blood clotting proteins. Well, especially pregnant women who suffer from hemophilia, usually experience longer bleeding if they experience it after an injury or major surgery. So what is the danger if the mother who is undergoing pregnancy experiences this? Let’s look at the dangers and signs of hemophilia in pregnant women. Launching from the Hopkins Medicine page, hemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder. The bodies of mothers who are pregnant with hemophilia can’t stop the bleeding because they don’t have enough clotting factors in their blood. Clotting factors are needed for blood to clot. Blood clotting is very important to prevent excessive bleeding. The most common symptom of this disorder is heavy and uncontrollable bleeding. This of course has a huge impact on your pregnancy. There are many blood clotting factors involved in the formation of clots to stop bleeding. Two common factors that affect blood clotting are factor VIII and factor IX. How severe hemophilia in pregnant women depends on the level of blood clotting factors in her blood. “Hemophilia is caused by a problem with one of the genes that tells the body to make the clotting factors needed to form blood clots. These genes are located on the X chromosome. All males have one X and one Y chromosome (XY) and all females have one.” two X chromosomes (XX),” said Douglas A Nelson, a specialist in oncology and hematology in the United States, quoted from the VeryWell Family page, Friday (17/12).

Meanwhile, factor IX levels do not increase during pregnancy. Therefore, it is important for doctors to recognize this disease in pregnant women so that they can prepare for a safe delivery. Doctors must take special safety precautions to avoid injury to the child. These safety measures include not using forceps or vacuum extractors to assist with delivery of the baby.
