Woman Receives Heart Care Throughout Pregnancy

A young couple tell their story about the care received at West Chester Hospital and University of Cincinnati Medical Center for a heart condition and subsequent high-risk pregnancy. Heart specialists at UC Health believed Jamie Laurie had Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome, a somewhat uncommon condition causing rapid heartbeat, dizziness and chest pain. Laurie’s catheter ablation procedure was halted when a nurse saw that a test showed Laurie was pregnant. Laurie and Ryan Young discuss the whirlwind of doctor’s visits and hospitalizations that followed. Their multidisciplinary team of OB-GYNS, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, maternal fetal medicine doctors and others collaborated to provide both Laurie and her son the best of care and a healthy delivery.
