I had preeclampsia with the birth of my first child in 1983. I was put on bedrest, and when my BP did not go down, was hospitalized for the last month. The baby and I were closely monitored, any potentially disturbing phone calls screened, and I was finally induced close to the due date. Immediately afterward, both the baby and I were given clean bills of health. I did not truly realize the seriousness of it all until a month later I read about a woman who died in childbirth at Stevens Hospital in Edmonds -- of eclampsia.
