Welcome.

It is always scary going through a pregnancy after having had pre-e or HELLP. My best advice to you is to find a great high risk OB to take care of your partner and educate yourself as best you can (this is a great place to do that) so that you can advocate for yourselves.

Did your partner ever undergo any testing for underlying disorders that can lead to pre-e? This can help give your OB an idea if there is anything that can be managed during the pregnancy (the underlying disorders are things like autoimmune diseases and blood clotting disorders).

Best wishes to all of you.

Hi all.
Quick story as myself and my partner are in a state of dis-something.
We so far have 1 daughter. Now 17 1/2 months old after being born 10 weeks early due to HELLP and a very nearly fatal bearth. After coming out at a meer 1Lb 7Oz She spent 8 weeks in NICU and finally came home @ 3Lb 12Oz.
We have now found out that my partner is 7weeks pregnent with twins and have the obvious worries for the healh of my partner and that of the twins etc..
Is there anyone that has been in the same or simulare situation that could offer some help or advice as we really need to put our minds at rest and keep us in check for the future.
With thanx. ALnJU.
