Lots of comments about this on Facebook, but if you didn't see that post, you'll want to read the news from the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists. I was a member of the task force that developed these and why you'll see, for the first time, a section recommending patient education as a routine part of prenatal care. Among other recommended changes in clinical practice.

Read the College's press release here: http://www.preeclampsia.org/the-news/1- ... t-released

We are developing a patient-friendly version of these guidelines now and hope to have it out before the end of the year.
