What is postpartum cardiomyopathy?

Postpartum cardiomyopathy is a form of dilated cardiomyopathy that leads to deterioration in heart function because the heart muscle cannot contract forcefully enough to pump adequate amounts of blood. It may start between the last month of pregnancy and up to five months after delivery.
