Preeclampsia affects about 1 in 25 pregnancies. In an incredible new video produced by UnityPoint Health-Meriter Hospital, Kara Hoppe, DO, MS of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, discusses her Meriter program that helps new parents with high blood pressure stay home and stay healthy after giving birth.
In the video, a former patient who experienced preeclampsia with a past pregnancy shared her story, as well as what it was like to use the remote telehealth monitoring program after going home from the hospital. Hoppe shared statistics about postpartum follow-up for preeclampsia, and common signs and symptoms that would suggest immediate evaluation.
