Aortic stenosis provides a unique management challenge during pregnancy and has historically been associated with a high maternal mortality risk. We describe our experience with pregnancies in patients with aortic stenosis at a single center over a 13 year period. When managed by an experienced, multidisciplinary, cardio-obstetrics team, these pregnancies are more likely to reach term with good outcomes.
