Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is not normal – especially, when sudden
Complication of pregnancy has to be looked into...
It could be co-incidental / and may not have any relation to the pregnancy

     Anaemia / Anxiety / Alcohol / Tobacco (smoking) / Caffeine (too much tea, coffee, cola) / Fever / Infection / Pain / Stress / Thyroid / Vitamin D, calcium, magnesium / Medicines like Phenylephrine used for ‘cold’; Salbutamol used for asthma and so on - may be responsible.... / Illicit ‘drugs’ like Amphetamine are notorious to cause abnormal beats / At times, abnormal nerve paths in the heart (bypass tracts) or disease of the conduction system may be responsible!

     HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance. The need and speed will be decided by her cardiologist, based on his assessment of the situation.

Discuss with your doctor...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
