What’s new at APEC

Action on Pre-eclampsia celebrate our 30th birthday this May, a huge milestone for the charity.

For 30 years we have been supporting and advising pregnant women, training midwives, and have supported Research into finding a cure for pre-eclampsia. Devastatingly, this disease still claims the lives of approximately 6-8 women and 1200 babies EVERY SINGLE YEAR in the UK and many more worldwide.

Over the next three months, we’re inviting our supporters to take part in a birthday fundraising challenge around the theme of 30!

Pre-eclampsia support and information

Pre-eclampsia is the most common of the serious complications of pregnancy. Learn more about this disease and how, for almost 30 years, we’ve supported thousands of women and families affected by pre-eclampsia.

Supporting those affected by pre-eclampsia

Action on Pre-eclampsia (also known as APEC) aims to raise public and professional awareness of pre-eclampsia, improve care, and ease or prevent physical and emotional suffering caused by the disease. We do this by providing information and support to members of the public who are affected by pre-eclampsia. We also run multi-disciplinary study days for midwives and health professionals who work with pregnant women, providing expert training on detection and management of pre-eclampsia.
