If a woman had to "clutch her heart" - I would interpret this as the woman touching her heart with her hand - then joyfully gasping.

Without knowing the exact context, I would say it's like saying, "I 'held my heart' ." This is an expression which implies that someone is feeling anxious, nervous, excited or scared by something that is happening.
