Re: Blood pressure issues

I'm so sorry you are still dealing with high blood pressure (BP). Recovery after preeclampsia is highly individual, some posters have their BP come back down in hours, some in days, some in weeks, some in months and some never quite return to their pre-pregancy baseline. As for me personally, I deve...

Re: New here: Recovery time after HELLP

Re: Looking for ideas on how to support a co-worker

I think the most important thing is to acknowledge their loss in some way, regardless of method. A close friend who lost her baby shared that it was hurtful when people she knew said or did nothing, much more so than people who might have just inadvertently said the "wrong" thing in their efforts to...
