In the 2,000 years that preeclampsia has existed, never has there been a book to address the disease from a parents point of view - until now. A Mom and Dad's Guide to Preeclampsia is the 1st book of its kind to help expectant parents through their struggle with preeclampsia.

My name is David Papandreas and I conceived a Mom and Dad's Guide to Preeclampsia while my incredible wife and I found ourselves searching helplessly on the internet for what to expect. It was amazing that the websites only discussed the characteristics that define preeclampsia and offer no practical knowledge. Pregnant with our first child, we were scared not knowing what this meant and how we would react to the diagnosis.

Now, 9 months after our baby was born happy, healthy, and whole, we want to share our story and inspire the 400,000 pregnant ladies every year in the U.S. that develop preeclampsia. The book features useful tips, strategies and real stories to help others deal with the condition.

My sister, two aunts, and two cousins all had eclampsia. My cousin died of it. Would it be best if I did not get pregnant, since I am probably at high risk?
