"More moms with congenital heart disease are showing up pregnant, having survived the tumultuous peripartum and neonatal period, and are now facing a new set of risks in pregnancy," said Dr. Michael Foley, chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the UA College of Medicine – Phoenix.
