  1. My ER sent me home with those symptoms 4 days after giving birth. I fought four more days until admitted to ICU. Now i suffer from ptsd.

  2. A few days after the birth of my third child I felt sick but didn't know what was wrong with me. I then went to see my obgyn and I was told I had post partum pre-eclampsia and that I should go to the hospital. I don't know why the condition is said to be so rare, yet I see so many women suffering and almost dying from it because they don't know what is wrong with them. There should be more information out there. Many pregnant women don't even know it exists! thank you for making this video.

  3. Such an important discussion. I developed post-partum preeclampsia only after giving birth shortly after the csection and again had to be readmitted a few days after discharge for very high blood pressure. During pregnancy I had no issues with blood pressure. My son will turn one next month and I'm still on nifedepine for BP and trying to implement diet and lifestyle changes on my own to manage this health issue (which is difficult to balance as a first time parent). All I've been told is that I may have had a genetic predisposition to hypertension that the pregnancy brought to the surface. It's very frustrating (to the point that I'm worried about any future pregnancies) but thank you for making this video. I will check out your book as well.
