Preeclampsia Foundation Special Event
« on: May 06, 2011 at 10:17 AM »
Please join us in any of 22 locations nationwide as we walk, fundraise and share the illuminating and inspiring stories of women, babies and families around the world who faced preeclampsia, a life-threatening complication of pregnancy.

CONSIDER THE FACTS...
Preeclampsia is a disorder that occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period:

    In the United States, a woman is diagnosed with severe preeclampsia every 6 minutes
    Worldwide, an estimated 76,000 women die every year
    Preeclampsia claims the lives of an estimated 500,000 babies each year
    Preeclampsia is now understood to be a key risk marker for women's heart disease
    Almost half of all pregnant women do not receive information about preeclampsia during their pregnancies
