Delivery may lead to a precipitous increase in maternal serum calcium levels, as calcium that was previously shunted to the fetus now remains in maternal circulation [1, 3] Additionally, in the absence of maternal calcium, the neonate may experience a significant hypocalcemic crisis as neonatal PTH levels are suppressed and the previously maternally supplied calcium is abruptly removed [3-5].
