About this clinic

The Cardiac Obstetrics Clinic provides care to people who are pregnant and have a heart condition. Pregnancy puts additional stress on the heart and circulatory system. Because of this, the clinic also helps people who develop heart conditions in pregnancy and may require additional monitoring. In most cases, a team specializing in heart disease and pregnancy can ensure a safe pregnancy.

Patients must be referred by a primary care physician, midwife, or specialist. (Referral form available below.)
