4 mm sized Muscular VSD patient

Hello doctor.
My aunty is 30yrs old now and she have a male child of 4 yrs. Her delivery was normal without any complication and that child is healthy and much talented. She decided to be pregnant for 1 more time and during prior fitness check up,
our physician carried out 2 D ECHO and concluded that she have
Congenital Acyanotic Heart Disease (SDS) ,
4 mm sized Muscular VSD.
Normal LV systolic Functions
No E/o Pulmonary HT
NSR.
        So, can she be pregnant for 2nd time safely? Will it create any problem to health of Mother and child ? Is surgery required for correction of the same or it can be treated without surgery ?
        Waiting for your answer much hopefully.

Since you are not the patient, it is probably better if you ask your aunt if she gives you permission to be asking for information about her health.
