I am the study coordinator, and you can contact me at [email protected] with any questions.

We are focusing on the northeast region of the United States because of concerns about travel, but if anyone is willing to come from further away, we certainly would not deny you! The main concern is that while we can offer some funds for reimbursement and travel expenses, the further you travel, the more it costs. Unfortunately we do have a limited budget.

Since this board is composed of women who are trying to conceive, we would love to include as many of you as possible, as well as any women who are in the "considering" stage of prepregancy! And if you are not interested/eligible for inclusion, please inform any friends or family member who may be able to travel to Vermont.

Good luck with conception and subsequent HEALTHY pregnancies!

I would suggest you contact the Study Coordinator directly. Her email address is in the article on our website, here: http://www.preeclampsia.org/research-to ... cal-trials

It does involve a limited number of on-site visits, but she'll be able to send you an overview of the study and answer any and all questions you might have. We have run the study proposal through our medical review team to ensure that you as a participant would be safe and that it has relevance to preeclampsia research.

I just read about this study and wondered what it involves? Regular visits in Vermont? Is there more info about this and what exactly researchers are trying to find out and/or will be looking at?

If you haven't seen it already, we just posted an article about a research study in Vermont that is interested in recruiting preeclampsia survivors. See info about this here: http://www.preeclampsia.org/research/learn-more. Rest assured that any studies that we post on our website have not only gone through a formal IRB process (meaning they have been approved by a human subjects review committee), but our own scientific and ethics review committee has also approved the study to ensure it is a preeclampsia-related investigation.
