Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) & Pregnancy

Rawan Alhalabi1 and Samah Alasrawi2*

Abstract

Both pregnancy & Congenital Heart Disease affect each other, due to hemodynamics changes, which may affect both mother & fetus. In this article we are going to talk about pre-pregnancy assessment, complications, drugs & mode of delivery in pregnancy with Congenital Heart Disease.

Mother’s complications: Heart failure, arrhythmias, bleeding or thrombosis, and rarely maternal death [1].

Fetus complications: Birth defects, prematurity, low birth weight, abortion, and stillbirth [1].

Conclusion: All CHD female patients must receive pre-pregnancy counseling, thus preventing all pregnancy-related avoidable risks and complications for both mother and fetus.
