Chanderdeep Sharma, Manupriya Sharma, Anjali Soni, Pawan Kumar Soni, Ashok Verma and Suresh Verma

Pelvic organ prolapse during pregnancy is extremely rare. Limited cases (less than 30) have been reported since 1980. From a very benign presentation of heaviness in perineum, it can present as uterine rupture with fetal and maternal mortality. No standard guidelines of care have been established for this rare presentation. There is gross variation in management ranging from conservative measures, laparoscopic surgery to cesarean section followed by peri-partum hysterectomy and abdominal sacral colpopexy. This case series report five cases of pelvic organ prolapse during pregnancy and outlines an approach of watchful expectancy with favorable maternal & fetal outcomes.
