Speaker: Michelle Gutierrez

How did your preeclampsia experience change you?

Michelle Gutierrez: Preeclampsia changed me because one day I was a happy expectant mother, excited for this new adventure I was on and the next I was in the hospital with high blood pressure, talks of early delivery, scary terms. I'd never heard of. Um I hadn't even heard of preeclampsia. I just knew to watch out for blood, high blood pressure and it just moved so quickly. I was in the hospital for over a month and ultimately ended in my son's death. He was stillborn. And so that changed me a lot.
