MAMA Wellbeing Wallet Saves Another Precious Life

Published on: 27/04/2022

Today, we’d like to share the story of Chloe from Tunbridge Wells and her little boy Robert. Chloe recently got in touch to tell us about how her MAMA Wellbeing Wallet led directly to her contacting her maternity unit to seek advice. The midwives invited her in for assessment, Chloe accepted, and from there they were able to identify her having pre-eclampsia and treat her appropriately.

“I just wanted to share a huge thank you for producing your amazing maternity note wallets as I strongly believe that the information on them saved mine and my baby’s life! I had a really bad pain under my ribs at 35 weeks and had never been told it’s something to look out for by my midwife. After seeing the information on my folder I called my maternity unit who asked me to come in and found out I had pre-eclampsia. It turned severe a few days later and I had to have an emergency c section as my blood pressure had got dangerously high. I’m so grateful to your organisation for putting that information out there as I dread to think what would have happened if I had carried on with the pain, so thank you from the bottom of my heart!”

We’re so glad Chloe’s Trust were using our Wellbeing Wallets, and that they were able to help Chloe and her family have a positive outcome. Robert was born at 36 weeks on 5th November 2021.

If you’re concerned, please always contact your maternity unit – they’re there for you 24/7/365.
