Deciding to have a baby is a magical time in any hopeful soon-to-be parent’s life. However, it comes as no surprise that navigating those waters can also be stressful and filled with unknowns. What should be done prior to pregnancy? What changes will new mommy go through physically and emotionally? What steps can parents take prior to the baby’s arrival to make the transition more seamless?
The Preeclampsia Foundation today released the Illustrated Preeclampsia Symptoms Tear Pad, a patient education tool that was developed in collaboration with health services researchers at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, Ill. The tool effectively informs pregnant women, even those with potentially poor literacy, about preeclampsia. Because preeclampsia is a disorder that can have grave consequences for a mother and her unborn baby, the goal is for the tool to offer information in a way that allows women to assimilate and retain knowledge related to preeclampsia, leading them to promptly seek medical attention should they have symptoms related to preeclampsia.
