i was diagnosed with peri-partum cardiomyopathy last year. it is purely related to pregnancy. it's a rare condition,and i wondered are there any mums out there who also have this ? it is very scary,when first diagnosed,and doctors have told me i cannot have any more babies. there is a professor at hull university who is funding research into this condition,as hospitals aren't really aware of it and they don't know why it occurs. i wasn't diagnosed by the hospital i gave birth in,although i had the symptoms..it was a nightmare. i am lucky to be here to love my baby boy. i would be interested also,as they said that carribean women are more suseptical to suffering it.
