BETH a PPCM AWARENESS PROJECT /SAVE THE MOMMIES ADVOCATE

Patient Leader

As a 2 x survivior of PPCM, (Peri partum cardiomyopathy or Pregnancy induced Heart Failure) I want everyone to know about this condition as easliy as they know that preeclampsia is possible with childbirth. My 1st child I had in 1988 I was never properly diagnosed. In 2001 when I had my 2nd child I experienced the same symptoms of PPCM, was diagnosed ,but only after 2 weeks of suffering and confusion. PPCM mimics the the signs of normal pregnancy symptoms. B/c of that ,it is often ignored by medical profs. Many have never even heard of it! Shortness of breath. Not being able to lie flat. Extreme swelling. Please follow savethemommies.com or PPCMAWARENESSPROJECT FB,,TWITTER, YT for more info
