Ground-breaking pre-eclampsia debate in Parliament on Thursday 9th May - we need your help!
Why are babies still dying in the UK?
Ground-breaking debate to take place in Parliament into a condition that kills many hundreds of babies a year
Pre-eclampsia is a complication of pregnancy which still has no cure. The condition is one of the most common causes of pre-term birth – and, despite good antenatal care in the UK, it claims many hundreds of babies' lives a year. Now, with World Pre-Eclampsia Day looming on May 22, a Parliamentary debate, called by Patricia Gibson MP, is set for May 9, to examine urgently what more can be done.
APEC (Action on Pre-eclampsia) calls on the government to prioritise research into stillbirths from pre-eclampsia, and to increase the resources available to support parents through this trauma.
