Women with some type of cardiac pathology will have to make more or less visits to the gynecologist and cardiologist during pregnancy depending on the severity of their illness.

At each prenatal visit, the woman's blood pressure and weight will be monitored. In addition, the following tests will be routine:

  • Echocardiogram: This is a type of ultrasound in which the heart and its structures are observed.
  • Electrocardiogram-This is used to record the electrical activity of the heart.
