(PPCM) Peripartum Cardiomyopathy is a pregnancy-induced heart failure that weakens the heart muscle & gernerally begins during the final month of pregnancy & often peaks 4-6 weeks after birth.
PPCM FUND INC. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded by PPCM survivors dedicated to saving unsuspecting mothers and their families from the hell that is PPCM (Peripartum Cardiomyopathy). Our mission is to save lives.
PPCM is a preventable* pregnancy-induced heart failure generally caused by an internal buildup of fluid.
The BNP and NT-Pro BNP are specialized/screening blood tests that have the ability to catch pregnancy-related & induced heart failure (PPCM - Peripartum-Cardiomyopathy) early enough to help dramatically decrease maternal mortality in new mothers.
"The B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) test is a blood test that measures levels of a protein called BNP that is made by your heart and blood vessels. BNP levels are higher than normal when you have heart failure."

EARLY DIAGNOSIS SAVES LIVES

- Know your BNP number.
*In most cases PPCM is preventable if caught and/or diagnosed early enough.
The BNP or NT-pro BNP test(s), especially combined with a chest X-ray
& EKG/Echocardiogram can do much to provide early diagnosis, before & after delivery.
