I am so sorry to hear about your precious Alfie-James. PE is a horrible disease and has taken many of our children. I hope that you find comfort in the fact that you are not alone and that we are here for you as you grieve.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I delivered my first daughter at 25 weeks due to severe preeclampsia and hellp syndrome. She died 10 days after birth. I went to my 23 week appointment, told my doctor I thought I had PE, that my mom had PE very early with me. He told me no I didn't it was too early. I almost died and my precious daughter paid with her life. You will find a lot of support here from a lot of women who have experienced the same thing. Again, I'm so sorry.

Dear Kimberley,

I am from the UK. I am so sorry to read about what happened - you should have been given high risk care (at least seen an OB who specialises in PE) early in pregnancy because of your family history of PE. Its possible that you would have benefited from low dose aspirin, for example.

If that did not happen, and you only saw a midwife, you were not treated appropriately and you probably have grounds for an NHS complaint, or even legal action if you want to pursue that [if you do I suggest you write no more about this on a "public forum" like this one].

It won't bring Alfie back of course, but I would definitely complain to the NHS if that had happened to me

xx

Kimberely, I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Alfie-James. It seems hard to imagine, even when we are out own best advocates, that the unthinkable can still happen. It's heartbreaking and so frustrating. Do you have an option to seek out a specialist? We do have a few ladies on the boards from the UK, perhaps they can help you with that matter. Please feel free to post here and ask questions ...as much as you are comfortable with. You have found a bunch that really do understand. Please take care.
