Low Dose Aspirin to Prevent Preeclampsia

 

CMQCC, in partnership with March of Dimes, select hospitals statewide, and community partners are collaborating to promote the use of daily low-dose aspirin for pregnant individuals at risk for preeclampsia.  Low-dose aspirin, as recommended by a healthcare provider, is the only known effective solution to prevent preeclampsia. 

About Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia is a serious disease during pregnancy, where high blood pressure and other complications can put the baby and pregnant person at risk. It affects about 4% of pregnancies in the United States and accounts for 6% of preterm births. Black birthing individuals are at greater risk for developing preeclampsia, due to heightened experiences of racism, further exacerbating disparities in maternal health outcomes.
