Preeclampsia Foundation

Preeclampsia Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit operating organization established in the year 2000 to promote safe pregnancy and post-partum research, public education and patient support. The Preeclampsia Foundation's mission is to reduce maternal and infant illness and death due to preeclampsia by supporting innovative research, raising public awareness, and helping women access safe reproductive technology, support and care. Because this disorder is transitory in nature-women become members of a silent club, each experiencing a similar crisis without the benefit of emotional, or physical preparation or the support of women who have been there before.

Thrombosis in Pregnancy

Pregnancy increases the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) but the true incidence is unknown. The risk of VTE continues in the post-partum period and is probably higher than during pregnancy.

Anticoagulants and pregnancy: When are they safe?

Prescribing anticoagulants to pregnant women can be difficult and stressful. Fortunately, low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWHs) and unfractionated heparin are quite safe and efficacious when properly selected, dosed, and monitored. Maternal and fetal concerns must be considered at all times, with a careful assessment of the risks and benefits of anticoagulant therapy in each patient. Further research should help to clarify who should receive thromboprophylaxis, how to prevent adverse pregnancy outcomes in women with various thrombophilias, and how best to treat pregnant women who have a prosthetic heart valve. Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine February 2009 vol. 76 no. 2 113-127

High Risk Pregnancy Support


In normal pregnancy, levels of most procoagulant factors (factors VII, VIII, X, XII, and fibrinogen) rise, while anticoagulant proteins either remain unchanged (protein C, antithrombin) or decrease (protein S). The fibrinolytic system is also altered, with increased levels of plasminogin activator inhibitor (PAI). These hemostatic changes can result in a hypercoagulable state. It has been postulated that maternal thrombophilic defects may exaggerate this hemostatic response and lead to an adverse pregnancy outcome.
