Heart health during & after pregnancy: What women need to know

While still rare, there's a rising number of women experiencing fatal heart issues during pregnancy, delivery and early postpartum.

In an effort to reverse this trend, UTMB Health is championing a cardio-obstetrics program, spearheaded by cardiologist Dr. Danielle El Haddad. Recently, Dr. El Haddad joined Meagan Clanahan, co-owner of digital media platform Houston Moms, to discuss:

  • How the cardio-obstetrics program works
  • Most recent stats on maternal mortality throughout Texas, the U.S. and the world
  • What symptoms or pre-existing conditions make individuals most at-risk
  • How women who are expecting or hope to get pregnant can protect themselves
