In brief: Depends

The answer depends on the type of heart problem you have/had and if the surgery completely corrected the problem. You should discuss the possibility of future child bearing with your heart surgeon and also with a perinatologist (high risk OB physician) prior to attempting to get pregnant.
Many women are able to conceive and have a safe pregnancy and delivery after cardiac surgery.
