My Story

In 2019, Matt and I welcomed our AMAZING rainbow baby Adelaide after a very long journey to parenthood. Four weeks before our due date, I went to my prenatal visit and my nurse took my blood pressure with a frown - it was 138 over 95, which although not "high," was quite high for me. Thankfully, my nurse and Ob took in seriously, and over the next few days, I was carefully monitored.

The decision was made to go ahead and induce before things got worse. My labor and postpartum experience went smoothly and Adelaide made it safely into this world with no major issues - a healthy 7lb, 3 oz baby girl. My blood pressure issues never because a crisis thanks to the great healthcare teams who had been informed with the preeclampsia toolkit that the Preeclampsia Foundation helped develop in California. WOW.

Matt and I know that this is experience is not the norm - but ALL new parents deserve to have it. Your donations ensure women from coast-to-coast get that experience because of the work of the Preeclampsia Foundation.
