Introduction: Pelvic organ prolapse is rare during pregnancy and is associated to women with multiple vaginal child births. Pregnant women are not ideal candidates for surgical management of prolapse, making pessaries useful for symptom control with few adverse effects. Due to its low incidence, information reported in literature is derived from case reports and recommendations are extrapolated from non-pregnant patients. Methodology: Literature review and presentation of cases. Results: Four cases of pregnant women with pelvic organ prolapse successfully managed with pessaries until the end of pregnancy without presenting serious complications are described. Conclusions: Pessaries are a safe and effective way to treat symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse during pregnancy.
