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.
