After hearing my story my school principal made me share about
the WAT during the school faculty meeting. Of course I had to tell
my story which started with, " at the end of '03 I was pregnant and
gave birth to a baby boy that was my dream come true. Unfortunately
he only lived for 22 days... you must be wondering what happened?
Well preeclampsia is what happened! I then back tracked to the symptoms; magnesium sulfate and hospital bedrest. I could see
by their faces that they were impacted. I ended with
a plea and reminded them to do it for their daughters; cousins
and friends that will have babies in the future.
One of the teachers later approached me to tell me that she
had had preeclampsia in her last pregnancy. It's amazing how
little people know about this disease. Thanks for reading!
