Re: Placental Pathology?

So sorry to hear of all that you've been through. It can be incredibly difficult to have a medical professional warn you not to try again. How are you doing with the decision not to have another?

Re: How long will enzymes stay elevated?

Hi there, I wish there was a precise answer for this, but unfortunately, it varies according to each patient and their unique biochemistry! Generally, most enyzmes begin dropping 6-8 weeks postpartum, and the majority of patients return to normal after 12 months. That being said, it can be difficult...

Re: Safe to have another baby? 2 bouts of PIH

Hi there! I think that trying to decide whether to conceive after an experience with preeclampsia, much less two experiences, is one of the hardest decisions a mom ever has to make. So sorrty for all that you've been through. That being said, the fact that you have had two pregnancies before and are...

Re: preeclampsia?

Hi there, I am so glad that you and your baby made it out okay, and glad we were there to help! It's a really scary thing, and totally reasonable to feel rather paranoid considering all that you have experienced. You are doing EXACTLY the right thing by checking in with your Ob and being carefully m...

Re: depression/anxiety during preg, & preg htn disorders

Hey Caryn, This leads very nicely to a question that I got posed via Facebook by one of our supporters related to this area of anxiety and preeclampsia.

Re: PE vs. HELLP

There are a lot of factors that go into whether you will develop preeclampsia again. Generally, yes, the less severe your preeclampsia experience (with HELLP being a much more severe variant of the disease even in its milder forms), the more likely you are to develop it in a future pregnancy. But, t...
