We describe the obstetric complications and management of a patient with Bernard-Soulier syndrome. Severe bleeding at the time of delivery and delayed postpartum hemorrhage were prominent features of her pregnancies. Further complicating this woman's pregnancies was the development of antibodies to platelet glycoprotein IB IX, leading to neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia.
