Pregnancy and mechanical valves

Postby ljc86 » Tue Feb 12, 2013 12:58 pm

Hi all,

I have read the leaflet on pregnancy and GUCH but was wondering if anyone on here has been pregnant with a mechanical valve? My husband and I are wanting to have a baby and will be having preconception counselling but I just wanted to hear from anyone who has experienced it first hand or knows anyone who has.
