Hi Eleni, I think one of the early posts about the Duggar family was written by someone with a connection to the family? I tried searching for the post but can't seem to locate it.

I also just saw the following article on AOL, and was horrified by some of the reader comments (basically saying something bad was bound to happen after having had many kids) --
http://www.parentdish.com/2010/01/28/duggars-present-baby-19?icid=main|htmlws-main-n|dl3|link5|http%3A%2F%2Fwww.parentdish.com%2F2010%2F01%2F28%2Fduggars-present-baby-19 (may have to copy paste the link, I guess the length & my lack of computer skills are messing it up)

It really bothers me (mainly for PE awareness, but also for the Duggars' sake) that people could be (and apparently are) mistakenly thinking that PE is caused by having a certain number of kids. I don't know what to do about it, and am sure that the PF is doing everything it can to get the real facts out there, I just wish that the news would give correct info on PE to the extent reporters mention the disease.

We've tried reaching producers and the family - if anyone has access, please either connect us or reach out directly. I would love for the PF to be recognized as a resource when the show airs, at least on Discovery's online edition.

I saw it too. It seemed like they wanted to get info about pre-eclampsia out, but the interview wasn't really focused that way. I hope they can use their fame to help bring awareness to this disease. I imagine someone from the foundation has tried to reached out to them...

The Duggars were on the Today Show this morning. A few facts about PE were presented.

I can't wait to watch it too! Last I read the baby was in stable condition and mom doing well recovering. Has anyone heard anything about this, I heard that she had some experience with pe with one one of her earlier pregnancies. I didn't know pe could come back into play so far into many kids. I guess anything is possible with pe.

Could someone watch it for me and report back? I'll dvr it :)

I'm just nervous, I think - nervous that they'll portray preeclampsia accurately and etc.

I haven't heard anything on how the baby is doing. I will definitely watch to see how they present Preeclampsia.
