This conference is a unique meeting bringing together cardiologists, maternal fetal-medicine specialists, and obstetric providers involved in caring for the pregnant patient with heart disease. Currently, cardiovascular disease is one of the highest causes of maternal morbidity and mortality. It is also a time when interdisciplinary management between primary care providers, obstetricians, certified nurse midwives, nurses, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, and cardiologists is critical. This CME program is designed to help all providers to better recognize, counsel, and refer women with cardiovascular conditions before pregnancy; and for all providers who encounter pregnant women with cardiovascular disease to better manage them for safer outcomes. CME, CNE and Ethics credit will be available.
