Women’s heart health and heart health during pregnancy
Here at Denver Heart, we understand that women have unique heart health needs. Symptoms of heart disease often present differently in women and women can have risk factors unique to being a women. We understand how those risk factors contribute to a woman’s unique risk factor profile. Our mission is to teach women about risk factors, symptoms, and special considerations that contribute to their heart health by offering a specialized team of experts familiar with heart disease in women. We want to partner with you to ensure your heart health through all the stages of your life. We are committed to listening to our patients, providing a risk factor assessment, education, monitoring, and specialized treatment focused specifically on the needs of women.
Denver Heart offers specialized support for women before, during, and after pregnancy.
Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life. However, sometimes the added stress of pregnancy can cause symptoms and manifestations of new or previously undiagnosed heart disease. Other women have pre-existing conditions that should be closely monitored by a cardiology before, during, and after pregnancy. Here at Denver Heart, we have a team of cardiologists who are experienced in the changes associated with pregnancy and how to manage heart conditions during pregnancy. Women who are considered to be advanced maternal age (getting pregnant after age 35) and/or who have a health condition such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or known history of heart disease are at increased risk of complications during pregnancy. By establishing a relationship before or early in your pregnancy, we can work closely with you during all the stages of pregnancy – including prenatal planning and during the postpartum period – to ensure you and your baby are as healthy as possible.
