Hi,
Now in recent time medical science has done tremendous progress so you do not worry,
In your case there will be team work of different specialist looking your care.
Only thing is that you constantly remain in contact with the cardiologist,gunacologist and in future neo natologist.
Do not worry,give your worries to doctors !
