    My sister is at 30 weeks and 5 days. Her baby is estimated to weigh about 1lb and 4 oz. we just saw her regular doctor and learned that two cardiac stenosis were observed on her last Doppler. I think the stenosis are aortic and pulmonary. I know the doctors have the answers but I don't know all the questions. My sister is only 22 and this was an accidental pregnancy. Is fetal surgery something I should ask the doctor about?  My son was born with a coarctation of the aorta, a bicuspid aortic valve. He had surgery at 13 months old and is now a happy 11 year old. How likely is it that my sisters baby will survive birth?  I would love to have some resources so I can manage my expectations and hers.
