What a touching article. It proves that awareness of this condition should be preached.

They're in my old neck of the woods. If I still lived up there I'd walk with them. How sad that their doctors brushed them off when she could have gotten proper treatment and prevented tragedy.

I am sorry to learn of this couples loss. I really admire the courage they've taken to promote awareness. We need these types of individuals making a stink in the media![:D]

That is such a sad story. But apparently, they still do not know about us. Laura, can somebody contact her and let her know about the PF? Just a suggestion.

Good idea Frasiah, but I do think they've found us, and here's where the mom's posted once:
http://www.preeclampsia.org/forum/pop_profile.asp?mode=display&id=474

I think for some people in this situation, trying to understand what has happened is the most helpful, and for others, talking with groups that focus on loss works better for them. It's all in how you approach it!

Good for them, though!
