Please see our new statement posted on our home page (www.preeclampsia.org). Our Medical Board has encouraged this information to be passed to all pregnant women. As this is not a preeclampsia-specific issue, we will not get into this issue in more depth, but did feel it was necessary to share a basic recommendation as it can be quite life-threatening to pregnant women.
As with all health matters, this is a discussion and a decision between you and your health care provider. Please use our statement to help inform your discussions.
You'll also note that there is a short survey at the end of the statement; we encourage you to answer these 7 questions as it will give us a good idea about how our women are responding to this threat.
