Women with heart disease are more prone to give birth to baby girls instead of boys, according to a new study presented at eh Cardiology World Congress.

The study revealed that three fourths of the 216 babies born out of 200 pregnant women that suffered heart disease were female.

They reviewed the sex of babies born out of 200 women with heart disease. 64% of these women were diagnosed with cardiac valve condition, 19% had dilated miocardiopathy and 14% were treated for congenital heart disease. These 200 women gave birth to 216 babies, and 75% were baby girls.

“We believe this is the first study that links gender to the mother’s hearts condition”, says A. Alizadehasl, of the University of Tabriz (Iran).

According to Kathryn Taubert, scientific director of the World Heart Federation, this data is extremely interesting. “The chromosomes in the sperm are responsible for the baby’s sex, but this study suggest that there can be a link between the health condition of the mother and their babies gender. Since the number of women with heart disease is increasing all over the world, this could represent a really interesting area for further research».

Women and heart disease

Heart disease, which includes cardyopathy and strokes, are the main cause of death for women around the world and it’s estimated that it causes 8,6 million deaths per year. Women that live in low/medium income countries who develop heart disease have a higher mortality rate than the ones that live in developed countries.

However, women don’t think about heart disease as the biggest threat to their health; they feel breast cancer is worse.
