Preeclampsia Foundation News

Screening Tests for Preeclampsia Preeclampsia Foundation News – August 16, 2013 If there were a way to learn your risk of developing preeclampsia in the first trimester of your pregnancy, would you want to know?  What if that test result wasn’t 100% accurate? We asked almost 1,000 women – some who had had preeclampsia and some who had not – these and other questions to better understand patient preferences around the need for screening (or prediction) tests. Eighty-eight percent of women with a history of preeclampsia agreed that an early test was important, even if it was imperfect. Even those without a history of preeclampsia – 74% – still agreed it would be important.

A Mourning Mom

Tonight, I found a very kind message from a another mom who has had to endure more than any parent should ever have to endure. I was deeply saddened but also inspired by the stories on her blog and wanted to share her link on my blog. amourningmom.com I also found this beautiful quote on her blog. It really says it all. “Do not judge the bereaved mother. She comes in many forms. She is breathing, but she is dying. She may look young, but inside she has become ancient. She smiles, but her heart sobs. She walks, she talks, she cooks, she cleans, she works, she IS, but she IS NOT, all at once. She is here, but part of her is elsewhere for eternity.”                                                                                                          –Author Unknown
