Heart Disease in Pregnancy, heart defect
Women with relatively mild levels of heart disease are unlikely to have major problems during a pregnancy, but if you have a heart problem and are considering pregnancy, it is important to obtain specific advice from your doctor.
More and more women who were born with a heart abnormality are choosing to have children. This reflects the enormous success of surgery to correct heart abnormalities in childhood. Because there are so many types of abnormality, individual advice is required about pregnancy if you have had such a problem, although for the women concerned pregnancy is not usually associated with serious problems or complications.
It is best to discuss these matters with your doctor prior to becoming pregnant.
