Surviving Severe Preeclampsia
On September 9, 2021, I checked in for my 36 week prenatal appointment; I'd been monitoring my blood pressure throughout my pregnancy, but it had recently been trending on the high side. My OB made the call to send me in to Labor & Delivery triage for monitoring and further testing.
As I was getting my tests run in L&D triage, my blood pressure skyrocketed -- a "hypertensive crisis" -- and everything went into motion very quickly. Just a few days before I would be considered term at 37 weeks, I was going to be induced, and would not be leaving the hospital without my baby.
My daughter was born on September 10, 2021, due to my severe preeclampsia, at 36 weeks and 5 days. I'm incredibly grateful to the care team who saw the red flags and took care of me and my baby in that critical time; it could have been a very different outcome for us both.
Please join me in raising awareness (and funds!) for the 2022 Promise Walk for Preeclampsia. Thank you!
