These infographics are available in .pdf and .jpg formats in English and Spanish.  They are available to download, share via social media and reproduce to post in clinics and public spaces. 

Infographic Goal: The goal is to increase women’s awareness of the signs and symptoms of CVD in pregnancy or postpartum (up to five months after having a baby).  Heart disease is the leading cause of death among pregnant and postpartum women.  If extreme symptoms do not go away with over the counter or prescription medication, women should see a healthcare provider.
