Abstract  
A 36-year-old woman, gravida 5, para 3, was referred to this outpatient clinic in the 18th week of gestation for monitoring of her pregnancy. A 22-week anomaly scan confirmed hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) but the parents declined any medical intervention. Here the authors present the management of a pregnancy and the expected quality of neonatal life.
