We present an unusual case of a young parturient who was diagnosed to have a complete heart block during her first pregnancy and permanent pacemaker was implanted. She underwent an elective cesarean section under subarachnoid block without any complications. The same patient presented after 15 months for emergency cesarean section. The surgery was again performed successfully under spinal anesthesia. The maternal and fetal outcome was excellent.
