Hi, what are you looking for?


Here’s what other moms should know about the ‘scary’ preeclampsia I experienced.

Amanda Perez, a mother from the Bronx, is anticipating a somewhat chaotic Mother’s Day with two young sons to care for. Despite the challenges, she’s grateful for the support she received from NYU Langone’s Postpartum Cardiovascular Health Program during her pregnancies.

Perez’s journey into motherhood with her two boys, Lucas and Daniel, has been marked by stark differences in her pregnancies. The first time around was fraught with anxiety due to a diagnosis of preeclampsia, a serious condition associated with significant maternal and fetal risks worldwide.

Reflecting on those anxious times, Perez, now 32, admitted to keeping her pregnancy largely to herself out of fear for potential complications.

However, Perez found solace and guidance through NYU Langone’s Postpartum Cardiovascular Health Program. This collaborative initiative, launched in 2022, offers specialized care to pregnant women, particularly those at high risk for cardiovascular issues. By closely monitoring their health during pregnancy and postpartum periods, the program aims to ensure the well-being of both mother and baby while also promoting long-term heart health.
