We have just received the sad news of the passing of Adenike Ogungbe the Ceo of EWAR makeovers today after child birth.
Report has it that it is due to Pre-eclampsia - a medical condition characterized by high blood pressure and significant amounts of protein in the urine of a pregnant woman. If left untreated, it can develop into eclampsia, the life-threatening occurrence of seizures during pregnancy.
We need to create awareness about this condition that has claimed so many young women's lives.
Some of the symptoms:
High blood pressure
Protein in urine
Vision problem such as blurring or seeing flashing lights
pain in the upper abdomen (just below the ribs)
excessive weight gain due to fluid retention
feeling generally unwell.
This condition however, if dictated early can be easily managed. It is unfortunate that in this day and age, women of worth are still being lost due to simple manageable conditions. We are deeply saddened by the news. Our hearts go out to the family, friends and the entire EWAR makeover team.
