Do you have any experience with or know the likely outcome of subsequent pregnancy in someone with an ejection fraction of 35%, that was the result of peripartum cardiomopathy in a previous pregnancy?
kate,
I developed this disease during my pregnancy as well.  I too, am trying to
find some answers about whether or not it is safe to have a second baby.
How are doing now?  My ejection fraction was less than 25% and I was sick
for about 6-8 months.  I'm doing much better now and my heart has returned
to normal, almost.
