Have you heard of HELLP Syndrome?
HELLP Syndrome is a life-threatening pregnancy complication usually considered to be a variant of preeclampsia. Both conditions usually occur during the later stages of pregnancy, or sometimes after childbirth. 
Today’s guest was diagnosed HELLP syndrome at just 23 weeks pregnant.  Trashaun Powell was immediately taken to the intensive care unit and was shocked to find out that their baby girl, Mia Jane, would have to be delivered to save her life.  Mia was 1 lb and 1 oz at delivery and passed away the next day.  Trashaun spent another 2 weeks in the hospital after losing Mia fighting for her own life. 
In this episode Traushaun takes us back to the moment of finding out she had HELLP syndrome and could die if she didn’t deliver immediately.  She shares how this traumatic birth and loss has empowered her to advocate for preeclampsia and fighting racial disparities for BIPOC.
This episode is for you to listen to if you have experienced Preeclampsia or HELLP Syndrome and have lost a micropreemie in the NICU.
