Sue,
Maybe we can get together after we get back from my brother's wedding. You are always welcome here if you feel like taking a ride, but we are also down in Indy once a week and could meet somewhere in the vicinity of St. Vincent's. In the meantime, I can start gathering information on doctors and hospitals.

WOOHOO .. you are close enough to meet up on a weekend if you are in town or I can come there. I have WAT and Conference shirts available .. I can bring brochures to you ..

Recommendation for approaching hospitals. Talk to the area you know, like I lost a child, I will go talk to the clergy office and discuss PE with them and how I want to help save other lives, how could they help me get these brochures to the right area, talk to a social worker in the hospital, NICU nurses if you have had a child in NICU or the NICU parent liason.

If you know a doctor that practices Obstetrics from the hospital, ask if they know how best to approach the hospital. Talking to nurses many times gets you in the door to help others. Let them know it's a way to help inform the patient about the signs and symptoms so they know what to look for in case they need to. Information helps make a better patient and nurses know it.

TO get started, you can request a starter kit from Carol(Brochure Distribution Head)and line up what offices/hospitals you want to approach. Make a list for tracking because you may want to go back to help refill their supply! :-) (aha! the power of positive thinking!) lol ..

Think about what was most important to you during your PE and/or HELLP experience .. what information was crucial to you. Use that in your argument to help pursuade them to distribute the brochures. Brochures are free to them, we just ask for help in shipping costs or maybe they would like to help with a small donation to get more printed! :-)

We advocate to help forge better communication between doctors and patients and make sure that patients are well informed as that will help them understand the reasons for the testing and how complying or asking for more testing will ensure a better healthier result from their pregnancy.

You're amazing as usual, Sue! I don't know how you find the time or the energy to do it all! Was thinking of trying to get some brochures into the two hospitals here. What is a good way to get started?

Send some WAT t-shirts our way. We'll be happy to be your billboards for the Lafayette/West Lafayette area.
