Because of the time factor involved, it would be an impossible task to present the vast body of biochemical information accumulated during the last decade on the endocrine aspects of pregnancy. However, certain key points can be made concerning the feto-placental unit and the hormone levels and effects in normal gestation. These concepts will be discussed not merely for their academic value, but also as a base to evaluate our present diagnostic and therapeutic endeavors in obstetrical practice. With the audience’s indulgence, an occasional personal conjecture will be interjected concerning hormonal mechanisms and clinical practices.
