General & Family Physician 's  Response
If you have a heart disease and are pregnant, you need to:
Consult a heart specialist before planning a family.
Make sure that the medicines you are taking for your heart disease are safe for your baby as any medicine that you take during pregnancy can affect your baby.
Keep your doctor informed, so that he can make the necessary adjustments in the treatment.
Take your medicines as prescribed.
Do not stop or adjust the dose of the medicine without consulting your doctor.
You must take medicines after proper interaction with your cardiologist and obstetrician.
