The functions of human reproduction and the main or associated disease in the pregnant woman are identified and related to them with frequency and impact of different magnitude. The authors of this report decided to evaluate the course of pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum in a group of 1 093 pregnant women with a confirmed diagnosis of noncommunicable chronic diseases -- type S hemoglobinopathies, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes and deficit anemia -- as well as some parameters of interest in their children; both treated in "Tamara Bunke Bider" Obstetrics and Gynecology Teaching Hospital, in the Cardiovascular Surgery Center and different services of "Saturnino Lora Torres" Provincial Clinical Surgical Teaching Hospital from Santiago de Cuba. With this purpose variables were selected: prevalence, age, parity, and nutritional status of the mother (body mass index), index of primitive cesarean section, preterm and post-term births, low and high birth weight and nutritional status of the newborn (retarded and accelerated growth) to finally analyze the neonatal and maternal morbidity and perinatal and maternal mortality.

Key words: pregnancy, noncommunicable chronic diseases, deficit anemias, diabetes mellitus, heart disease, hypertension, type S hemoglobinopathies.
