Abstract

Increasing numbers of females born with congenital heart disease are reaching childbearing age. Practitioners involved in the management of the adolescents or adults must be aware not only of the risks of pregnancy associated with varying types of CHD but with other issues involving the reproductive cycle to provide appropriate care, counseling, and education.
