I was wondering if anyone has gone through a pregnancy with a moderate to severe mitral valve leak. What were some issues that you faced? Did the pregnancy further worsen the leak? Did you consider repairing the valve before getting pregnant?
I am finding it difficult to find information on this topic, is there a good resource? Thank you in advance for any advice or sharing your experience.
