I was diagnosed with severe preeclampsia and I like many of you all also had complications, such as placental infarction. I've never heard of infarction until the pathology report then I did some web-searching on infarction. The nicu dated my son's age/development at 34wks instead of his gestational age of 37wks due to the infarction blocking oxygen and nutrients from 34wks on. I want to know if the infarction is a complication due to preeclampsia. Has anyone else had this complication and preeclampsia before? Any info is appreciated. ty.
