Can you believe that every 6 minutes in the US, a mom and her baby face life threatening consequences from preeclampsia? And many don't even know what it is!
In case you don't know what it is.....Thousands of women and babies die or get very sick each year from a dangerous condition called preeclampsia, a life-threatening disorder that occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Preeclampsia and related disorders such as HELLP syndrome and eclampsia are most often characterized by a rapid rise in blood pressure that can lead to seizure, stroke, multiple organ failure and death of the mother and/or baby.
