Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
A hole in the heart is a congenital disorder. It never occurs as a result of childbirth.It is only a chance that due to the pregnancy the work load of your heart increased and you started having problems like shortness of breath due to which investigations were done and a hole was detected.
