The father of preeclampsia research, Dr. Leon Chesley, first published the authoritative manual on the topic decades ago. Now, with members of our medical board serving as editors for the newly updated and still authoritative guide, Chesley's Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy, 3rd Edition is now available. The Preeclampsia Foundation has secured distribution rights to it, along with an agreement by its publisher to offer a discount and make a donation to the PF for every book ordered using our special code.
While this book is clearly written for physician-scientists, given the level of knowledge many preeclampsia survivors attain, it may be of interest to patients. It might also make a nice thank you gift to your doctor!

A bit more about the book:
Hypertensive disorders remain one the major causes of maternal and fetal morbidity and death. It is also a leading cause of preterm birth and now known to be a risk factor in remote cardiovascular disease. Despite this, the hypertensive disorders remain marginally studied and management is often controversial. ChesleyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Hypertensive Disorders in Pregnancy, remains one of the beacons to guide this field, recognized for its uniqueness and utility. The Third Edition continues this tradition, focusing on prediction, prevention, and management for clinicians, and is an essential reference text for clinical and basic investigators alike. Differing from other texts devoted to preeclampsia, it covers the whole gamut of high blood pressure, and not just preeclampsia.
