Lecture Overview


How would you feel if your birth plans were suddenly interrupted and you were forced to spend the rest of your pregnancy confined to a hospital bed? For women with preeclampsia, this is a stark reality they face. Join Professor Shaun Brennecke for part two of his two-part series on preeclampsia and learn how you can best support the woman and her partner/family through this critical disease of pregnancy.
