Gestational thrombocytopenia is the term used to refer to mild thrombocytopenia that occurs during the 3 rd trimester with spontaneous postpartum resolution but no neonatal thrombocytopenia.

Thrombocytopenia during the 1 st or 2 nd trimester is to be investigated immediately, but third-trimester thrombocytopenia is often harmless and does not need any treatment.
