We would like to speak to you. We are recruiting healthy women who wish to conceive, for a study on preeclampsia. Preeclampsia is a disease of pregnancy, associated with high blood pressure and protein in the urine, in pregnant women. It can be dangerous to both mother and baby. In this study, we will be looking at the way differences in body function can contribute to the development of preeclampsia.

We will provide you with ovulation detection kits to aid your conception. Financial compensation of up to $375 is provided.
