Who We Are
Established in 2000, we are the only national 501(c)(3) not-for-profit patient advocacy organization serving the 5-8% of pregnant women - 300,000 women each year in the U.S. - who are affected by hypertensive disorders of pregnancy such as preeclampsia (formerly known as toxemia), eclampsia and HELLP syndrome. We are advised by a medical board comprising the top medical and scientific experts in preeclampsia and related fields, additionally partnering with other non-profit organizations, governmental agencies, academic institutions, and corporations to achieve our mission. Our Non-Profit Tax ID Number is 91-2073087.
What We Do
Educate, support and empower women – and their friends and loved ones - on the warning signs, long term consequences and medical understanding of preeclampsia, including their need to get timely, appropriate care.
Increase public awareness of preeclampsia, including raising global attention on this devastating maternal-fetal health issue.
Enable professional training, resources and research to improve the clinical practices of health care providers.
Fund and advocate for research and improved policies to meet critical gaps in scientific knowledge and inspire new thinking.
The Preeclampsia Foundation reduces maternal and infant illness and death due to preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome, and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy by providing patient support and education, raising public awareness, catalyzing research and improving healthcare practices. We envision a world where preeclampsia no longer threatens the lives of mothers and babies.
