Pre-eclampsia stories: Our experiences of pre-eclampsia

Pre-eclampsia stories: Our experiences of pre-eclampsia2024-05-16T07:16:36+00:00

Sharing an experience of pre-eclampsia or HELLP syndrome can help with processing everything as well as being a way to inform others who are or have been affected by pre-eclampsia. Many women who suffered with pre-eclampsia and associated conditions can still need support many years after their birth and they have told us that writing their story has often helped express those feelings.

We are very grateful to the parents who have sent us their experience stories and thank them for allowing us to share. If you would like to share your experiences with others, please complete our online form below.

Please bear in mind due to the nature of severe pre-eclampsia some of the stories people have shared are very upsetting and may contain bereavement, hospital descriptions and illness.
