The Heart Disease in Pregnancy Program

About our program

The Heart Disease in Pregnancy Program was created to deliver specialized care for women with a pre-existing cardiovascular condition or those at high-risk for cardiovascular complications during and after pregnancy. As part of the program, a multidisciplinary care team, including maternal fetal medicine providers, OB anesthesiologists and cardiologists, provides preconception counseling and risk stratification; prenatal care, development of an individualized labor plan, access to fetal echocardiography, care during labor and delivery, and coordinated postpartum care.
