Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in pregnant and postpartum women. During pregnancy, the maternal heart rapidly adapts to the increasing physiological and metabolic demands of the growing fetus. This adaptation often takes the form of a physiological hypertrophy in which the maternal heart grows to increase cardiac output; however, the molecular processes underlying pregnancy-induced hypertrophy (PIH) are poorly understood. The goal of this study was to examine the…
