Placenta ACCRETA PATIENT & FAMILY RESOURCES
National Accreta Foundation helps connect placenta accreta, increta and percreta patients & families with resources and content of value:
Here is the latest placenta accreta professional society consensus document. This article is a valuable tool for patients to understand the current landscape in accreta treatment best practices. Patients are their own best advocates; National Accreta Foundation strongly encourages all accreta families to ensure they are at a hospital with specialists who are capable of providing appropriate level and evidence based care.
Receiving a placenta accreta diagnosis can feel overwhelming, but there is a large community of accreta, increta and percreta survivors who are here to tell you about their experiences and what every accreta mom needs to know. In our “Accreta Experiences” series, National Accreta Foundation features articles written by survivors in their own words sharing their placenta accreta experiences and learnings.
From what to pack in your hospital bag to suggested topics for pre-delivery discussion with your family and support network, National Accreta Foundation co-founder Kristen Terlizzi passes on tips from her two month postpartum hospital stay.
Patient stories are a critical tool in building a community and making change. National Accreta Foundation receives requests by media, researchers and other organizations for patient stories, speakers, and representation. If you’re interested in opportunities to use your placenta accreta, increta or percreta story to improve maternal health, add your story to our bank here.
