A Look Into a Woman's Heart #AmericanHeartMonth

Disclosure: Heather from UnityPoint Clinic contacted me about sharing this infographic on my blog. I was not compensated for this post nor have I received any free products.

February is American Heart Month and it's a great time to learn more about heart health! This topic is so near and dear to my heart. My husband was born with a congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot.

 Modern women wear so man hats and we don't always do what we need to do to take care of ourselves. As moms, sisters, daughters, and wives, it's so important that we remain healthy so we can take care of our families. Recently, there's been a lot of information out on women's heart health. Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States? Many women don't recognize the symptoms until it's too late.

UnityPoint Clinic has presented an infographic so that women can become more aware of the importance of heart health. You can learn more about women's heart health here.

  2. I had no idea so many women die from heart diseases here. Me myself have a problem with my heart that I'm following up with a cardiologist for and it was scary when I first found out but I'm learning to live with it.
