Near Death Experience | Postpartum Preeclampsia
It was in 2018, five days after giving birth to her second child, that Lauren realized something was wrong with her body. She was re-hospitalized for a life-threatening illness that was initially difficult for doctors to diagnose.
“There was a point where my doctor said, ‘There’s only one test left in the whole hospital that I can give you, and if this test shows nothing, I have to send you home,’” Lowrey recalled.
The doctor ordered a CT scan which revealed that her lungs were full of fluid and her heart was enlarged. This explained her steadily rising blood pressure, her inability to breathe and impending feelings of doom.
She was treated and she is doing fine,’’I was 33 years old when that happened to me, and I’m always at the cardiologist getting my checkups, making sure I’m healthy,’’ Lowrey said.’’ ‘’Because to me, leaving my family is not an option.’’
American Heart Association | 2023 Woman Of Impact
By telling her story, she has brought healing after that devastating event. It’s why the American Heart Association has named her a 2023 Woman of Impact, to help raise money and awareness about the instances of heart disease in young women.
‘’As mothers, we can be at risk of heart disease, too. That’s why if you’ve ever had preeclampsia- even if it was 30 years ago- you have to get screened for heart disease.’’
