My son has a hole in the heart. What is the treatment procedure?

The hole needs to be closed either through a catheter threaded to the heart or by open heart surgery.

What causes increased heart rate in a pregnant woman?

I think it’s a normal response to pregnancy, increased metabolic demands of growing fetus. Remember the baby depends on the mother for everything while in the womb.
