Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
Considering all this,her pregnancy may be risky and you should consult gynaecologist before you decide to have baby. Her condition is serious and it may have bad effect on possible pregnancy and baby. So I woulkdnt suggest to go on without more detailed consultation with gynaecologuist.
Wish you good health. Regards
