Pregnancy is the most blessed yet painful stage of a woman’s life. Extra care and attention are required by expecting women.Pregnancy can be complicated even for a woman with no heart disease but the case becomes more complicated to handle if the mother-to-be is suffering from heart disease. Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) can be dangerous for the mother and the fetus both. Each heart disease has its own risk factor. CHD’s risk factor is sufficient enough that Doctor will not recommend you to plan for pregnancy. the chances of developing the CHD in the fetus of a woman with normal heart is 0.8%.
