Supporting APEC makes a real difference.

Action on Pre-eclampsia 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 receive no statutory funding and are mainly supported by the kind donations and subscriptions from the public – people like you.

What is pre-eclampsia?

Pre-eclampsia is the most common of the serious complications of pregnancy. It is caused by a defect in the placenta, which joins the mother and baby and supplies the baby with nutrients and oxygen from the mother’s blood. Read more →
