Childbirth is certainly an amazing experience.  Unfortunately sometimes that experience becomes a complicated and uncertain event.  HELLP Syndrome can be one of those  experiences that can complicate pregnancy.  Stories of how each mom and family deals with HELLP may bring hope, strength and courage to others out there who are just experiencing HELLP/ pre-eclampsia or who have already went through HELLP or those who are just researching HELLP. 

We are now 100's informative stories strong 

What is HELLP Syndrome? 
It stands for Hemolysis, Elevated Liver, Low Platelet.  For more information on HELLP please refer to my HELLP Syndrome page .

Do you have any information about a possible correlation between emotional stress and hellp syndrome?  I had a particularly stressful pregnancy ('though everything was fine phsically until week 34 when I went to the emergency room and was diagnosed with hellp).  Just wondering if the emotional stress could have brought on the hellp syndrome....
any info. you have would be very much appreciated!

Thank you, Andrea

Thank you for this web site I delivered my daughter almost two years agowith a severe case of HELLP that was misdiagnosed by my doctor as being a nervous first time mother.  I have searched and searched for information on HELLP and was never satisfied with what I found until now.  As I consider having a second child I feel more confident in knowing the questions that I should ask my new OB and what my risk factors are for a reoccurrence as I ve been told by several OB that there is no risk.
Please keep this site going it is truly a worth while endeavor
