Preeclampsia is a leading cause of maternal mortality and prematurity
The U.S. ranks 47th worldwide and is the only industrialized nation with a rising maternal mortality rate
1 in 12 pregnancies (5% - 8%) are affected by preeclampsia
African Americans are 3x more likely to die from preeclampsia
40% of medically necessary preterm deliveries are due to preeclampsia
75% of maternal deaths associated with preeclampsia occur after delivery
41% of maternal deaths due to postpartum preeclampsia occur in the first 48 hours after delivery
Women who experience preeclampsia are 4x more likely to develop PTSD
For every pregnancy-related death, there are at least 50x more "near-misses"

It's important to know that delivery is not the cure for preeclampsia. Any woman can develop preeclampsia after her baby is born, whether she experienced high blood pressure during her pregnancy or not. Moms need to continue to monitor their health after delivery.

Preeclampsia doesn't always go away after birth –– Postpartum preeclampsia occurs most commonly within the first seven days after delivery
