Women’s health researchers from Cambridge Cardiovascular will be available to talk about pre-eclampsia and other complications of pregnancy, highlighting the impact that these conditions can have on women’s cardiovascular health in the longer term. Over a cup of tea, we will provide a safe and supportive space for women who may have experienced pregnancy complications to talk about them, or ask questions about their cardiovascular health. We will also share details about the POPPY study, which is a new, national preconception and pregnancy study being led by the University of Cambridge. Visitors to the stand may also have their blood pressure measured and receive advice about home blood pressure monitoring.

This event is aimed at women who have experienced placental complications during pregnancy, those who have not and also anyone who is interested in women’s health research.
