Hi Kate!

Thanks for the link! It has been useful to observe tools for overcome preeclampcia's problem in the USA.
I mentioned especialy two tests which pregnant women have to do this is for hypertension and for protein in an urine. For the test of urine in Ukraine women have to go to hospital or laboratory. I couldn't find any tests for doing it at home. And also
pregnant women don't have any toolkits from supervising doctor for early recognition of preeclampcia

Hi Melissa!

Thanks for your comment.

Now I see that as set of tests (for arterial pressure, for urine analyzing etc.) in one box which is situated near to pregnant woman. The results of tests could be entered to app and send to doctor to decide what to do next.

You are absolutely right that pre and postpartum mothers who are touched by preeclampsia have different needs. Look
1) During prenatal period mothers have to regularly make tests and receive doctor's advice on their condition. It takes time, espesially if hospital far from woman, often doctors decide to hospitalize pregnant women to control rapid changing in the health conditions.
2) Postpartum mothers have to check conditions of kidneys. In my observation that is just a year after.
