Re : Emotionally Dealing with HELLP Over a Year Later

<t>Thank you so much for sharing your stories! It makes me feel thankful things went as they did, and it also lets me grapple with some things that happened. <br/> <br/> I know -exactly- the pain everyone is talking about. When I was hospitalized, I had that pain frequently, and even right after bir...

Re : Emotionally Dealing with HELLP Over a Year Later

All of the resources here have really helped so far. I'm thinking about ordering a report from the hospital. Did you find that helpful? I think I may be a numbers person and need to see it in writing to grasp what happened to connect the dots of my emotional/physical experience.

Re : If you were on Mag for labor were you stuck in bed

<t>This is really helping me wrap my mind around my experience. So I was on mag while I was chemically induced for labor and then physically induced by my midwife.

Re : Emotionally Dealing with HELLP Over a Year Later

<t>Thanks so much!<br/> <br/> My story goes that I had been extremely sick for about a month (I just thought it was a normal feeling of pregnancy) before my blood pressure was checked by my midwives on a regular meeting and I was sent off to run blood tests.

Emotionally Dealing with HELLP Over a Year Later

<t>I'm here because I still occasionally have awful nightmares about losing a baby or the stress of being in this dark space with machine sounds, just miserable. I know I'm very fortunate because my baby boy was only born a month early and I managed to give birth to him induced without a C-section. ...
