Pregnancy and Maternal Health
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of maternal death in the U.S., or more simply put, heart disease is the No. 1 killer of new moms. It can pose a threat to women’s heart health during pregnancy and later in life, making it important that women understand how to care for themselves and their baby.
Go Red for Women is here to support women in all stages of life, and all stages of a pregnancy.
