I agree re specialists and we would love any of the specialist volunteers to help with the podcasts. Please email me if you are interested.

Please note that Minnie and I are volunteers and have busy day jobs. We record these podcasts in our spare time as we are keen to impart education. Thanks.

Please start Mg when severe pre-eclampsia (see below) or as soon as they are fitting. It needs to be continued until 24hrs after delivery, or if fitting until fit free for 24 hours.
Severe pre-eclampsia: ‘There was a general agreement to define preeclampsia as severe if blood pressure was >160mmHg systolic or 110mmHg diastolic. There was scarce agreement on the amount of proteinuria to define severity. The HELLP syndrome was considered a feature to include in the severe classification. ‘
