Pregnancy/giving birth with an ICD/pacemaker
Hi! Soooo...my husband and I were trying for a baby before my unexpected cardiac arrest in December 2018. It has been 5 months (today) since my SCA (4.5 months since my ICD/pacemaker implant). My diagnosis was: Arrhythmogenic Mitral Valve Prolapse. I know this is a personal question, but do you think it's too soon to start trying for a baby again? I'm pretty stable emotionally, I think my ideal beta blocker dosage has been figured out (I'm on 5mg of bisoprolol - which is supposed to be pretty safe during pregnancy), and I haven't experienced any shocks since January.
Also, just thinking ahead about things... I've read that they will need to put a magnet over my ICD when I give birth (whether it's a natural birth or c-section). Does anyone know anything about this? Anything else I should know?
