Keep Your Hearts Safe
Pregnancy puts a woman’s body under stress, affecting her heart’s health. Pregnancy changes the pregnant woman’s blood circulation and increases blood volume to assist the fetus to grow, raising the heart rate and hence the pumping of blood.
Giving birth adds to the pressure and strain on the heart because blood pressure and flow alter during labour, especially as the woman pushes the baby out. And it may take several weeks following delivery for the woman’s heart pressure to recover to normal.
What Are The Possible Consequences?
1- Heart Valve Problems
As previously stated, blood pressure and flow rise during pregnancy, necessitating a healthy, well-functioning heart. Furthermore, if the pregnant lady has a heart or valve deformity (scarring or an artificial heart valve), the chance of health issues increases.
2- Problems with Heart Rhythm
Minor heart rhythm abnormalities are relatively common during pregnancy and may be cured with suitable medications, so you don’t have to be worried about arrhythmia.
3- Congenital Heart Defect
If the mother was born with a congenital cardiac defect, the pregnancy may be complicated, and the baby may be born prematurely. Furthermore, she may give birth to a child with a congenital cardiac defect.
4- Congestive Heart Failure:
Congestive heart failure can exacerbate by high blood volume.
