Pregnancy in pulmonary hypertension is a very sensitive and multifaceted topic. Beyond medical considerations, cultural, religious, and personal beliefs play pivotal roles, adding layers of complexity to the decision-making process. Navigating this delicate journey requires a comprehensive understanding of each individual’s unique circumstances and values.
