Hello everyone!

LetsTalkPPCM will be celebrating Peripartum Cardiomyopathy Awareness Week on May 13, 2023. It's our organization's second event, and we'd love to have you all there to help celebrate the saving of many lives from PPCM.💚

There will be free BNP testing, blood pressure checks, and postpartum exams. BNP blood test is recommended for moms who've experienced: High blood pressure, Preeclampsia, Multiple births, Heart murmur, Hyperemesis gravidarum, Fertility treatments, Covid-19, or a Family history of heart disease.

We are excited to invite 50 vendors who would love to come out and advertise their business. (Health, wellness, food, clothes, jewelry, community services, etc.) We plan to have K104/979, guest speakers, and activities for kids.

Vendor tables are $85. This will be donated to the organization's mission to save new and postpartum mothers from Peripartum Cardiomyopathy. We will add all business names and logos on a flyer, our website, and social media advertisement.

*All donations are tax-deductible, as LetsTalkPPCM is a 501c3 nonprofit organization in Texas.*

Ladies and gentlemen, please come out to La Lueur Health and Wellness Clinic on 5/13/23 from 11 am-3 pm to learn more about the pregnancy-induced heart condition, Peripartum Cardiomyopathy.

This condition affects new mothers up to 12 months postpartum that have risk factors of High blood pressure, Preeclampsia, Multiple births, Heart murmur, Hyperemesis gravidarum, Fertility treatments, Covid-19, and Family history of heart disease.

All moms are welcome to get a free BNP blood test in our mobile bus that will be parked in front of the event.

A B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) test gives your provider information about how your heart is working so it's good to know your numbers.

We will provide cooling areas for moms with babies and private spaces for nursing moms to get their BNP checked.

There will be food, speakers, vendors, goodie bags, and a small play area for the kids, so come party with us on 5/13/23!!!🎉
