I think that the studies we are preparing to collaborate on just want "fresh" specimens (us) so prefer you had it within the past two years--I don't think they say before the baby is born or after...I can check with them when we get closer to starting the study.

I had pre-eclampsia in October 2002, it killed my son and almost did away with me as well. My doctor told me that I was lucky to walk away and not be on a donor list needing a kidney or liver. She also said that if I got pregnant again it might kill me. I have since been pregnant again and had a healthy baby girl born November 2003. She is 9 months old. But I have had Pre-eclampsia before with the pregnancy carrying my oldest daughter. I didn't have the elevated liver enzymes with her in 1994 but I did with my son in 2002. I am willing to help in any way that I can. My husband and I are going to try for our 4th baby next month.
