Re: Assistance for hospital stays for mom's w/ preeclampsia: information, resources, financial assistance

Hey Casey, Sorry for the delay in response! I was out of the office this past week. So first of all, I'm so sorry for all that you and your fiance are going through. Have they moved forward with delivery yet, or is she still being monitored? We'd love an update on how all three of you are doing. Sec...

Re: Anxiety and/or PTSD

You are definitely not alone in experiencing PTSD after severe preeclampsia. Research has shown that women who have had preeclampsia, eclampsia and HELLP are about 4-10x more likely to screen positively for PTSD, and the more severe the outcome, the more likely it is! Are you getting any help, eithe...

Re: Trying again

The good news is, there are women who have! There's generally about a 20% chance of developing it again, but that risk can range widely depending on a lot of factors.

How early did you experience it?

Re: List of pre existing disorders

Hey Molly, it hasn't been published yet, but we're almost there!! Sorry for the delay; our very awesome research writer tries to be as thorough as possible, and on articles like this, we always have to run it through the appropriate medical authorities.

So in general, preeclampsia tends to be less severe in subsequent pregnancies, likely because the protocol is to deliver the mom at 37 weeks if she even shows the slightest sign of high blood pressure, alongside of being monitored more closely. A smaller percentage of women, for reasons that are unc...

Re: Symptoms after Pre-E

Hey Lanny, SO sorry to hear about all that you've been through! It can be really traumatic to have a perfectly normal pregnancy and then suddenly develop preeclampsia near delivery. I'd recommend you checking with your primary care physician about whether you should follow up with a specialist who c...
