Pregnancy itself poses risks of morbidity and mortality to even the young, healthy woman. The nature of these risks may vary from country to country and, within the United States, from state to state. Hemorrhage, eclampsia, and infection, in general, are common obstetric risks. One of the most important nonobstetric causes of maternal death, and the focus of this article, is heart disease.
