hi! I would like to encourage you to connect with Action on Pre-Eclampsia, our sister organization in the UK. You can find them at www.apec.org.uk Feel free to post here as I am sure you will find a lot fellow country-women and we're definitely not scooting you off, but for practical "local" advice--I can't recommend them enough.

In fact, I'm off to England this Sunday for a week for a meeting with them and a conference in Oxford!

Hi Sam,

It's great to know theres others out there who have been through the same ordeal and that you're not alone. Benjamin my son is doing fab, he is a healthy and strong little boy. Me and my husband feel so blessed to have him. He is such a joy to us. I still have protein in my water and it's 5 months on, does anyone know if this is normal?
I'm from Shropshire, It's near the border of Wales if you havent heard of it lol

Hi Gemma

just thought i would say hi to a fellow Brit, and welcome.
I am in central london whereabouts are you?

congratulations on the birth of your precious son, i am just sorry that you had to experience the wrath of PE. It is a club that none of us wishes to be a member of, but we are thankful that we can share our experiences with other ladies who truly understand what we have all been through.

I am sure You will find all the ladies on here very understanding and full of support, and will try their utmost to answer any questions that you may have.

I hope your son is thriving and that you are well

best wishes,and we look forward to your posts

Hi, I'm from England. My son Benjamin was born at 32 weeks as i had severe PE. He is now 5 months old. I would love another baby in a few yrs time but not sure weather to or not. The thought of going through all of that again just terrifies me. I was in hospital for 5 weeks before i gave birth. If i did get PE again, it'd be very difficult to leave my son for that long. Is anyone in the same boat? How many of you have gone on to have a 2nd child and did not get PE / or got PE again? (if that makes sense lol)
