TenderHearts: Cardiovascular care for pregnancy
Sometimes special circumstances can put mother and baby at risk, which means the joy of pregnancy can be tempered by questions and concerns. The TenderHearts cardiovascular program provides specialized care for these patients when cardiovascular concerns arise.
Maternal-Fetal Medicine together with Community Heart and Vascular are equipped to answer all your cardiovascular questions. A cardiologist is available 24 hours a day — call any time with any question. We are here to meet your needs, whether it be a one-time consult, co-management throughout pregnancy or more extended comprehensive care of the patient.
We can provide in-office EKGs and echocardiograms for the mother with an interpretation by a cardiologist on site. Our highly integrated approach includes knowledge, skill and expertise, all in a compassionate and caring environment. Cardiovascular concerns for the expectant mother could include, but are not limited to:
- Heart palpitations
- Chest pain
- Mitral valve prolapse
- Shortness of breath
- Congenital heart problems
- Marfan syndrome
We make sure that patients and their caregivers are confident and comfortable with the plan of care. The more we know, the more comprehensive treatments can be provided throughout every stage of pregnancy and childbirth. It all adds up to peace of mind for mothers and their families.
