Re: Responding to people downplaying PE

As a 2x PE survivor, that last "tip" does seem a bit offensive. I don't think that was the intent but perhaps some women out there have experienced an over eager doctor who was more concerned with his/her own convenience rather than patient need. I had 2 different doctors for each of my previous pregnancies and was (and still am) completely confident that both me & my children are alive and well today because of their excellent care. Yes both pregnancies ended in c-section for me and although I would have liked to experience a vaginal birth, my ultimate goal was to deliver healthy babies and be alive to enjoy them. So thank you to Dr. **** & Dr. **** and to all the other doctors out there who take PE & HELLP seriously, recommending the course of treatment that is right for each patient and not the 1 size fits all!
