Uterine prolapse concurrent with pregnancy is a rare event. Complications resulting from the prolapse of the uterus in pregnancy vary from minor cervical infection to spontaneous abortion, preterm labor and maternal and fetal death. We report a case of stage 3 uterine prolapse during pregnancy presented at our antenatal clinic. The patient had pre-existing uterine prolapse, was treated conservatively with bed rest and the use of a pessary and had a successful vaginal delivery at 39 weeks of gestation. Conservative treatment of these patients throughout pregnancy can result in an uneventful, normal, spontaneous delivery.
