May be dangerous: If you have any significant heart disease, you should try to see a doctor for counseling before you try to get pregnant. Many heart conditions will be fine during pregnancy and just require special monitoring. There are some which have a high chance of severe complications and death with pregnancy, including pulmonary hypertension and aortic valve disease.
