We often hear the statement, “I wish I knew…” What is the most common sentiment women and family members express in your region?

I'm Amanda Davidson. Hi, I'm Ann Marie Hennessy and we are PEARLS. I had preeclampsia when I was pregnant about 20 years ago. Back in 2000 and Anne Marie was my doctor at the time. following having preeclampsia, I decided to try and do something about that. And with Anne Marie we established PEARLS Which stands for preeclampsia research laboratories 20 years ago And we are celebrating our 20th anniversary on World Preeclampsia Day with a gorgeous lunch here in Sydney to raise awareness and to continue with the important fund fundraising work that we do. And my research team have a PhD scholarship funded annually by the PEARLS community that Amanda has rallied around her. We can't thank her enough but we wish everyone around the planet would rally behind PEARLS to get rid of it because it needs to be gone here here and we hope that you all enjoy World Preeclampsia Day, spend some time talking to one another about preeclampsia, about its devastating effects on families, mothers and babies. and just try and get behind the, the scientific communities in your area so that you can make a real difference in terms of pregnancy outcomes for women and their families. Bye everyone. Bye bye.
