Though this answer is not specific to her Bec we don't have her medical details and don't even know which valve is replaced or if any other involved or not. But in general valve related anti coagulation medicine can be shifted to self use injection ( subcutaneous) like insulin once or twice a day during the pregnancy period. If she is one who has no other valve involved and rest of heart is normal, she would be fine and live well during and after the pregnancy delivery
