In brief: Death, injury.
Congestive heart failure is dangerous for anyone, but particularly for pregnant women.
It can lead to maternal death, pregnancy complications (preterm labor, cesarean section, fetal distress) and need for intensive care. Management with maternal-fetal medicine and cardiology specialists is warranted.
