Blood Pressure

Moms Under Pressure

In the United States, preeclampsia is the cause of 15% of premature births and according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, preeclampsia kills more than 50 mothers a year in the United States and accounts for 7.4% of U.S. maternal deaths.

 

Moms Under Pressure program launched in August 2022. The goal of Moms Under Pressure is to reduce adverse health outcomes for at-risk mothers diagnosed with preeclampsia. Thise program was created utilizing funding from the Pew Grant via the Virginia Hospital and Health Association.  Through this program, Huddle Up Moms created blood pressure cuff kits, educational materials, and wrap around care coordination with mothers diagnosed with blood pressure during pregnancy in our community. 

 

We currently have over thirty mothers enrolled in this program and have received many enthusiastic notes of appreciation from the participants. Huddle Up Moms is actively looking for opportunities to expand this program to further address this growing need.
