HypothyroidMom.com Remembers the Babies Lost to Thyroid Disease on October 15th Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

October 15, 2013

On October 15th, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, the thyroid advocacy blog Hypothyroid Mom builds awareness about the dangers of thyroid disease in pregnancy in memory of all the babies lost to hypothyroid moms.

(PRWEB) October 15, 2013

HypothyroidMom.com reveals research on the dangers of thyroid disease in pregnancy, including miscarriage, still birth, infertility, maternal anemia, pre-eclampsia, placental abruption, postpartum hemorrhage, premature delivery, low birth weight, and deficits in intellectual development in infants. Despite research showing the danger of thyroid disease in pregnancy, the lack of awareness is pervasive.

The mission of Hypothyroid Mom is clear – to drive awareness.

Since the launch of HypothyroidMom.com last October, founder Dana Trentini has heard from countless women with thyroid dysfunction who have lost their babies. She fears there are many more babies lost to maternal thyroid disease than anyone realizes.

Founder Dana Trentini was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid, following the birth of her first son in 2006. She trusted her doctors especially when she became pregnant again in late 2008. She would later learn that her New York City doctors did not know enough about hypothyroidism, especially the dangers of thyroid disease in pregnancy.

Under their care her TSH, the gold standard for testing thyroid function in mainstream medicine, reached levels far above the recommended range for pregnancy and she miscarried. On that fateful day, she vowed to research everything there was to know about this disease and warn women everywhere.

She fulfilled her vow with the launch of Hypothyroid Mom on October 1st, 2012.

October is National Miscarriage Awareness month in the U.S., and October 15 in particular is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Dana intentionally timed the launch of Hypothyroid Mom during Miscarriage Awareness Month in memory of her unborn baby she lost to hypothyroidism.
