Some women have low platelets during pregnancy...my friend has it happen with every pregnancy, and as soon as she gives birth they return to normal level. Sometimes steroids help improve counts, and if they are really low they might to a platelet transfusion. With super-low platelets you can't have a spinal or epidural, so you either have to go all-natural or have a c-section under general anesthesia.

It is great that they caught it early and are sending you to someone who can help you...hopefully with the right actions now you can get it under control early and not have to worry!
