The Preeclampsia Registry has established and maintains a mailing database.

The Preeclampsia Registry will never release the mailing list or the names of member families to any outside organization or third party unless required to do so by law. However, if an outside organization sends us information for distribution to The Preeclampsia Registry families, we may mail it to you after the Board approves the mailing.
