Raising Awareness About Leading Pregnancy Complications in the U.S.
In the United States, three of the leading causes of these deaths are Preeclampsia, Embolism (pulmonary) and Post-partum hemorrhage. That's why we are encouraging expecting families to have a PEP Talk — a conversation with a healthcare professional about these potential pregnancy
complications. Click here to see Chief Medical Officer Dr. Michael Rosenblatt and
near-miss survivor Jennifer Albert talk about the importance of raising awareness.
