Advances in cardiology and cardiovascular surgery have increased the use of permanent pacemakers in young adults such that there are more women with pacemakers becoming pregnant. This case report describes the pregnancy and delivery of a young woman with a demand pacemaker and reviews the principles of management of cardiac pacemakers in pregnancy. As part of the multidisciplinary team including cardiology, anesthesia, nursing and caring for these patients, it is important that obstetricians be informed and follow the principles of management of cardiac pacemakers in pregnancy to continue to achieve successful pregnancy outcomes.
