Objective: To make recommendations on the prevention, early detection and treatment of pregnancy-related complications in Colombia.Materials and methods: The developer group worked on these CPG during 2011-2012 following the Methodological Guidelines for the development of Comprehensive Care Guidelines under the Colombian General Social Security System. The work was based on the scientific evidence available, and was conducted with the active participation of patient groups, scientific societies and stakeholders. In particular, the evidence for this Guideline was adapted from the CPG on “Antenatal care: routine care for the healthy pregnant woman” (National Institute of Care and Health Excellence - NICE - 2008) and updated using systematic procedures both for the search and assessment of the evidence as well as for developing the recommendations. The level of evidence and the Strength of the recommendations were expressed using the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network system (SIGN).Results: Thirty clinical questions were prioritized and gave rise to recommendations associated with the administrative organization required for pre-natal care, the management of the most common complaints, activities to ensure mother and child wellbeing, and indications for early detection of disorders that may alter the normal course of pregnacy, among others. Conclusion: We present a summarized version of the recommendations and evidence for this section, with the expectation that they will be adopted by healthcare practitioners in charge of pregnancy care in Colombia, in order to reduce pregnancy-related morbidity and mortality. Key words: Clinical practice guidelines, evidence-based practice, pregnancy, prenatal care, Colombia.
