Are you part of the NICU club? Do you have a child who is still struggling with the effects of being born too soon from preeclampsia? Share your concerns and stories here among parents who have been there.
Hello, I was diagnosed with severe preeclampsia at about 32 weeks. My vision was very bad and my protein count was 3000. After an emergency C section, pulmonary adema I gave birth to a boy. What I didn't know is that the doctors were harming him much more than my body could have.
When he was born they inserted an umbilical catheter and pierced his heart. They knew they did that evening after x ray and moved it. Nothing was said or attempted to us. After 5 days his heart was bleeding out and failed.
I hope the doctors in our case sleep as well as we do.
