Significant number (53) had their diagnosis made at the index pregnancy. Patients who developed cardiac failure (17) mostly did during antenatal period (20-42 weeks); the majority had cardiac failure (14) at third trimester. Two of the cases that had cardiac failure at 33 weeks ultimately had stillbirths later at term. Induction of labour for such cases, which was discouraged earlier, should be considered.
