Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
That is indeed a very low ejection fraction and pregnancy with cardiomyopathy is associated with a significant decrease in left ventricular function and can result in clinical deterioration and even death.
The chances of successful pregnancy and delivery depend and vary from case to case and I would suggest that you consult her Ob/Gyn and a cardiologist to further optimize her cardiac status so that she can undergo the pregnancy without causing a significant health risk to herself.
Hope this helps.
