A 29-year-old woman was transferred at 31 weeks gestation for management of infective endocarditis (IE). Echocardiography demonstrated vegetations on aortic valve and severe mitral regurgitation. Blood cultures were positive for Streptococcus sanguis. Due to impending hemodynamic collapse, a cesarean section was performed followed by aortic valve replacement and mitral valve repair with a patch of bovine pericardium. At 10-month review, both mother and baby are doing well.
