According to the guidelines women will suffer from successful pregnancy even in high-risk heart defects if they start receiving the right medical support. Mary Canobbio who is the researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles revealed the guidelines, these guidelines first created by American Heart Association to offer a road map to women who have long been told to avoid pregnancy altogether.

Mary Canobbio said in a mail which can be read as, “Historically the tendency has been to advise these women to avoid pregnancy because the defect and surgeries done to keep these women alive are complex and the long term survival is difficult to predict – so concern has been that the ‘added burden’ of pregnancy could potentially cause more problems and decrease their own long term survival.”
