Below are a selection of accounts from mothers, families and midwives bravely sharing their experiences of pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome.

Writing and talking about their experiences helps to raise awareness of what pre-eclampsia is and how devastating it can be. It also highlights how important the work APEC does, both to educate on pre-eclampsia, and supporting those families affected by the condition.  If you would like to share your experiences or journey with others, you can submit your story here.
