Looking to connect with other women who have had another pregnancy following HELLP. I had severe preeclampsia with my first pregnancy, delivered at 27 weeks, with my second delivered at 31 weeks under general anesthesia, also had cholestasis , severe preeclampsia and gestational diabetes.

Have a consult tomorrow with ***** at the ***** . Wondering if anyone has had an experience with her, or can recommend anyone who specializes with hellp and severe preeclampsia

Welcome!

I had to edit out the doctor and facility names, but anyone near Philly should feel free to contact you privately and share information about the doctors they've liked. FWIW, I think the one you're seeing for the consult looks very qualified to manage a patient with the immune responses you've got going on - someone who's first author on publications looking at first trimester diagnostic tests using complement factors.

Outside of pregnancy, do you have any chronic conditions or underlying autoimmune diseases?
Science! The articles you don't want to miss:
