Dr. Peter Varga

6 doctors agree
In brief: Generally safe
There is little or no risk to the baby if the episodes are brief and well tolerated by mom. However it depends on the frequency, rate and duration of the episodes.
More important question is how is the svt controlled, what medications? These may be harmful to the fetus. You need to be followed by an mfm specialist.
