Despite being one of the oldest diseases on record, preeclampsia - a pregnancy-related disorder - remains one of the leading causes of mothers and babies dying.

  • Worldwide, preeclampsia claims the lives of an estimated 500,000 babies and 76,000 mothers each year.
  • Preeclampsia accounts for 15-20% of the 13 million premature births worldwide.s
  • Half of all pregnant women do not know the warning signs of preeclampsia.
  • The cause, and therefore a cure, still eludes us, though there are steps we can take today to reduce adverse outcomes.
