Hi Robin,

I guess it depends on what you mean by problems...

Emotional/mental - yes, many women need support to deal with the emotional impact (see a therapist, ideally one who specializes in perinatal issues and possibly be open to medications that could help).

Physical problems, additional medical problems - yes, many women have those two often related to kidneys or cardiovascular (heart) health. In any case, it's important to get with a healthcare provider who knows and understand that this can be as a result of preeclampsia. Although your specific postpartum care does not need to be provided by an OB/GYN.

Hope that helps a little.

Best wishes,
Eleni

After the postpartum period

Has anyone had any problems after the postpartum period? I did have postpartum preeclampsia but I'm still having some issues even though my daughter is now 1.
