I have a ventricular septal defect (VSD). What are the risks to me in pregnancy, and the chances of my baby having the same condition?

Assuming your VSD closed in childhood or needed an operation, and you are now fit and well, the risks of pregnancy to you are very small indeed. There is a small risk that baby could have a congenital heart defect of around 3-5%, so a careful ultrasound scan of baby's heart is usually recommended.
