Has anyone on here had the disease called HELLP?

Basically the advanced version of pre eclampsia. My 27 yr old daughter almost died from it. Would really like to talk to other moms who have had HELLP.

  • I haven't personally. However, I watched my aunt go through 3 times. She too almost died with her last baby. More then likely they will just induce her early, for the safety of both the mother and child. They had to do that with my aunt, 3 weeks early with all 3 of her pregnancy's.

  • She had HELLP in 2005, grandson was born 5 wks premature. Dr said she would die if she ever got pregnant again so we all kind of forced her into having her tubes tied. Just wondering if any moms who had it went on to sucessfully have another baby.
