Getting pregnant with a heart problem? Should I get "clearance" from a cardiologist first?

In brief: Yes

Some cardiac abnormalities are clear contraindications to pregnancy as they are associated with high mortality rate.
Like severe pulmonary hypertension, severe aortic stenosis, mortality can go up to 50 %. So yes a cardiology clearance is the best way.

In brief: Yes

Really depends on what your 'heart problem' is, but a word to the wise is still yes.
