Abstract: Cardiovascular diseases are one of the leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality. With the advancement in medicine and surgery, more and more women are reaching child-bearing age [1] Valvular heart disease (VHD) of rheumatic etiology remains a prevalent cause of maternal morbidity and mortality [2]. The severity of aortic stenosis (AS) decides the peripartum complications in parturients and the fetal outcomes. Mild to moderate AS is well tolerated during pregnancy but severe AS is associated with pulmonary edema, dysrhythmias and even death. Given the complexity of VHD in pregnancy, patient should be managed with multidisciplinary approach throughout pregnancy. We report two cases of AS with different patient profile needing adjustment.
