I've been meaning to come on here to see if anyone knew if she had PE/HELLP. It's the first thing I thought of when I read it too. Glad you were able to see that. I've been praying for them since I read about it - very sad story but they do a great job keeping updates and pictures are so uplifting! Agree this is a story that could bring a lot of light to PE (in all it's awful forms!)

When I was reading about it, it sound like PE to me. They should really mention that on the facebook page and help raise the awareness. This is a story that happens way to often, and the more people are aware, the less it will hopefully happen.

She did. It's hard to find it on the facebook page, but one of the very first news reports mentioned PE specifically. I searched until I found it!

For those of you on Facebook, search this page and give this family your support. This first time mom had a brain aneurysm and slipped into a coma at 34 wks, and baby was delivered safely by c-section. Mom is still in a coma. These are the kinds of stories that give media attention and shed light on the disease of pre-eclampsia.
