Simultaneous kidney–pancreas transplantation can successfully restore fertility in women with type 1 diabetes mellitus and kidney failure. There have been few cases of pregnancy after simultaneous kidney–pancreas transplantation, and a second pregnancy is rare. We report a case of two live births in rapid succession in a simultaneous kidney–pancreas transplantation recipient, complicated by pre-eclampsia but with excellent fetal and graft outcomes. The first pregnancy was achieved with IVF, while the second was achieved naturally. Simultaneous kidney–pancreas transplantation with stable pre-pregnancy graft function enabled this patient to achieve successful pregnancy. However, both pregnancies were complicated by transient renal graft dysfunction and pre-eclampsia precipitating pre-term birth.
