The month of May is Pre-Eclampsia Awareness Month all around the World️

Have you heard of Pre-Eclampsia aka PreE?! PreE is condition in Pregnancy and Postpartum (PP)

Many women are more familiar with PreE during Pregnancy but it def can occur in Postpartum up to 6 weeks or even longer️ Many studies are in the making. But PreE is a condition caused by the placenta and can lead to severe elevation of your blood pressure that can cause threatening conditions to baby while pregnant and mom in Pregnancy and Postpartum

So I would like to give you a little 411 on the symptoms and if you devel any of these during your Pregnancy Or PP please call your OB Provider or go to the ER (And if you go to the ER after you have your babe make sure that you tell them you are Postpartum!)

1. Headache that will not go away with Tylenol 

2. Vision changes i.e. blurred vision seeing spots or halos

3. Upper abdominal pain, typically on the right side

4. Rapid increase in swelling in lower and upper extremities + face

If you have any questions contact your OB provider/ Midwife/ WHNP xooo️
