Cardiac Obstetrics

Baptist Health Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute

Pregnancy brings many changes to a woman’s body -- physically and hormonally. Many of these changes can present with symptoms or signs that may raise concerns of underlying cardiac conditions. Additionally, many women who have certain medical conditions may have a worsening of issues with pregnancy involving their cardiovascular conditions. Often, doctors are not fully aware of the cardiac issues a pregnant woman may have leading to a sub-specialty around Cardiac Obstetrics.
