Understanding Pre-eclampsia: A guide for parents and midwives
APEC is proud to be the UK stockist of Understanding Pre-eclampsia, a new publication by Joyce Cowan and APEC founders Professor Chris Redman and Isabel Walker. It covers everything parents and midwives need to know about pre-eclampsia, from causes to long term consequences to the often profound emotional fallout.
