Understanding Considerations of Women with Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Regarding Pregnancy

Until recently, most women with congenital heart disease were discouraged from becoming pregnant, largely because of a lack of medical evidence of risks and to support recommendations. However, many people with CHD desire pregnancy, and also pregnancies are not always intended. The qualitative aim of this study asks women with ACHD who became pregnant about the factors that influenced their motivation to become pregnant or maintain an unplanned pregnancy, the care they received surrounding their pregnancies, and how they balanced any risk information or warnings against becoming pregnant. We aim to better support future patients with ACHD who are considering pregnancy.
