Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have been a midwife now for 18 years and it is, I believe, the best, most privileged and  rewarding job ever. For the majority of mums the outcome is a happy mum/healthy baby, but this is not always the case. Around 1 in 10 pregnant women will be affected by pre-eclampsia, and, out of these, around 4 women and 1000 babies die every year.  It can be totally devastating for families and to date the only known 'cure' is delivery of the placenta.

There is so little understanding of the condition, and this is why Action on Pre-eclampsia continue to fund raise. Research into pre-eclampsia is essential to gain a better understanding, which will, in turn, inform health care professionals, pregnant women and their families.

Deaths through sub standard care are unacceptable and it is the hope of APEC, through research, to prevent this occurrence.

This condition could, quite literally, affect every single person either directly or indirectly, and this is why I am asking for your assistance to raise funds by sponsoring me to run the Virgin London Marathon on 28th  April 2019  

I am truly grateful to you all.
