Postpartum Preeclampsia. I have been posting a lot about #MaternalMentalHealth as it is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth; but May is also #PreeclampsiaAwarenessMonth. Yesterday was #WorldPreeclampsiaDay, so I apologize for being a day late. Perhaps some of you consider me an #oversharer these days, but I have decided transparency is the healthiest way for me to move forward in life.
