INTRODUCTION: Pregnancy in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) carries a high mortality, especially postpartum.1 Moreover, new therapies such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), used in non-pregnant patients with PAH, have not been validated in their pregnant counterparts. This along with lack of treatment guidelines, makes management of PAH in pregnancy challenging.
