I am 32 weeks pregnant and the baby has been diagnosed with aortic stenosis. I am concerned about related syndromes, including Williams syndrome; however, my medical team can't seem to give me any indication that the baby may have related problems. My medical history suggests that congenital issues are likely - this is an IVF/egg donation pregnancy and I had an unsuccessful pregnancy last year with IUGR and ambiguous sex. Can you give me any info about possible problems related to this diagnosis and any tests we can have? See answer
