Hi First of all, a quick introduction - My name is Therese, I am 38 & just found out I am pregnant with my 2nd child. My son is almost 4 & was born by C-section due to complications from severe pre-eclampsia/HELLPS syndrome. We were extremely lucky in that the condition did not rear its ugly head until I was 40 wks along. Nevertheless it was not a great experience & one I would not care to repeat, if at all possible.
I am planning this time around on having a VBAC & hoping to learn a lot from this board. I also have done a little research on diet in pregnancy & found this Brewer Diet which claims to eliminate pre-eclampsia. I was wondering if anyone is/had heard of or is following this diet or knows of anyone who has done it. I would love to hear some experiences & feedback. tia.
