Nice one! This kind of goes hand in hand with our Survey results about Preeclampsia education reducing morbidity and mortality, right?

Perceptions of women's feelings about PE

The perception of the gravity of the disease coupled to the little information given during treatment increased fear amongst these women. Health professionals making high risk prenatal assistance more humanised (especially regarding preeclampsia) could facilitate an approach which would take the disease's emotional dimension into account during pregnant and postpartum women's clinical appointments.



Yes, telling us what's going on would *make it less scary*, kthx.
