I had HELLP syndrome with my first son. He is now 9 years old. I have 2 other children. I'd like to known if there has been any research to show how the children born from a HELLP syndrome pregnancy develop. Physically my son is fine however he has language issues and doesn't process information well. He is very different from my other two children who I did not have HELLP syndrome with. All of my children have the same father also. I'm a mother trying to understand my child and best help him learn and grow. Click here for answer
I had preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome with what I believe to be my first and only pregnancy. I believe my sister had eclampsia with her second pregnancy. I also believe that our mother may have had this condition but little was known at the time of my birth. Both my sister and I now have a daughter. Given our history, does this mean that they are at a higher risk for having these problems? My daughter is just learning of these things and is concerned that she will have the same complications as we did, so I told her I would look into it for her. Click here for answer
