    WOW!! Just happened to surf Netflix and watched the movie Breathe. The EXACT same thing happened to me 7 years ago. Just wow. I have to figure out why God led me to watch this movie today. It brought back so many memories, and the sadness I still feel to this day because I lost 6 days of my life during which my daughter was delivered. Just…wow. Thank you for the movie and this site.

      I was surfing Netflix and ran across the movie “Breathe” , I had no idea what it was about , but as the movie progressed things triggered inside of me .27 years ago I experienced this same disease , it wasn’t found until my due date , my doctor had to act quickly and by the grace of God I was ok as well as my baby daughter who is now 27 years old. I think this is a great movie ,it help raise awareness to this disease , I knew nothing of this disease at that time and although times have changed and there are more resources for women , I would hope resources are appreciated and used.

    My friend referred the movie breathe to me because in Dec 2012 I me and my daughter almost died due to severe preclampsia. My kidneys went into failure my blood pressure was super high. My daughter was born not breathing but we fought hard and survived. I really didn’t know much or research preclampsia so when I became pregnant with my 2nd daughter it came back again this Time more severe my kidneys and liver were failing so rapid I had an emergency c section to save me and my daughter. Due the surgery I ended up with blood clots in both my lungs and almost died again a week after giving birth. Then while in the hospital they preformed a echo of my heart and said I have cardiomynopthy. 10 weeks later I’m still battling All this. Your story gives me much hope.

    I saw the movie for the first time on netflix and I loved it. While watching I immediately knew that the symptoms were of preeclampsia. I thankfully did not experience the severe state however I did have the disease with my first pregnancy 7 years ago. I had high blood pressure, swelling, headache and high levels of protein in my urine which put me at risk for seizures. I had to be induced 6 weeks early. Your story is amazing. Thank you for sharing.

    I, too, saw the movie and came away hoping that the couple sued the doctors. I say plural, because if the movie was accurate, all the Drs. circled the wagons to protect her obstetrician; and why did she not seek a second opinion earlier? I guess it’s better to get even than to get mad! Remarkable couple….

    I just watched the movie on Netflix. Loved it although I didn’t have any problems like that, thank God, my doctor made me carry my baby an extra month in which I was told later it could have been detrimental to her health. I later found out he had been sued for a baby being stillborn due to waiting too long to deliver. Needless to say with my next pregnancy I found another doctor. Which leads me to the question. Did your family sue the doctor to teach him a lesson?

    I just watched this movie on Netflix and it was so good. I’m glad everything turned out good because it could have so easily went the other way. We as women do have to listen to our bodies because we are the ones living in our bodies not the doctors some of them are just like the man in this movie just their to get a check and that’s so sad so if you feel like something is wrong then 9 times out of 10 it is LISTEN TO YOUR BODY NOBODY KNOW YOU BETTER THAN YOURSELF

    I just came across this movie today and found the description to be interested, little did I know this was basically a movie about me! I, too, developed pre-eclampsia 5 years ago with my 2nd daughter. I had the same symptoms Angela had and was placed on bed rest for the remaining 8 weeks of pregnancy as my dr said I was just ‘stressing’ myself out working, and that I needed to check my diet, etc even though I knew that wasn’t it. By the end of my first week of bed rest and me telling them I still felt ‘off’ even after being on bed rest, I ended up having an emergency c-section and delivered my daughter at 31 wks. I briefly remember seeing her after her delivery more so through pictures from my husband. I didn’t get to really see her, tough her and hold her until 3 days later. Thankfully, we both recovered with her coming home only after 2 weeks and not having to stay until her due date. Thank you for making this movie!

    Tonight I watched “Breathe.” Somehow after reading the description I knew the story. I had eclampsia with my third child. The problem was my blood pressure never measured as high until the blindness and seizures began. Like Angela in the movie, I gained weight quickly, had severe headaches (I actually saw stars), the swelling was unbelievable. The doctors delivered my baby and the seizures began after I returned home. I felt as if I was drowning. They still could not diagnose the problem until a neurologist was brought on the case (they did a spinal tap to determine it wasn’t meningitis). All of this is to say thank you for telling your story. My baby is 19 today. God even blessed my husband and I with a fourth child without complication.

    I passed the title of the movie several times on Netflix and finally decided to watch it and I’m glad. Your movie was very good and informative. I gave birth to my first child at 18 and was at the stage prior to your going to the hospital i.e. selling, high blood pressure, fainting and rapid weight gain ( I went from 135 to 202 pounds in a very short period of time. I thank God my doctors new what was going on and ran all the right test and monitored me closely. Awareness is so important – now your body and speak out.

    I too was surfing Netflix and came upon Breathe. It is an awesome movie, very entertaining and riveting. I will definitely watch it again, and I will assuredly recommend it to others.

    Samson is a great singer! I will be looking for the soundtrack for sure!

    I had pre-eclampsia during my two pregnancies, but it was not nearly as bad as that depicted in the movie. My doctors monitored me very closely.

    I went into labor at 34 weeks with my first pregnancy and had an emergency C-section. The baby was double footling breach, which is another reason for the C-section. He was 7 lbs 5 oz and 19″ long. He was in an oxygen tent for the first day and a half, but other than that, he suffered no complications. Today he is a strong, healthy 23 year old. I had no complications after delivery.

    My water broke at 36 weeks in my second pregnancy. I had a C-section and another bouncing baby boy who was 8 lbs 1 oz and 21″ long. He is a strong, healthy 22 year old today.

    I was told that had I gone full term with both pregnancies, the babies would have been over 12 lbs. Ouch!

    I loved the movie, but I have one question. Why or why didn’t you get a second opinion when the doctor kept telling you your symptoms were normal and it was all in your head? Your symptoms were definitely not normal, and it WAS NOT in your head!

    I’m glad everything turned out so well for you and your family. I love the scene in the movie where Samson tells the doctors all his wife needs is 20%, and they don’t know his God. God is great all the time! God bless you!

    I stumbled upon Breathe when surfing Netflix. Very powerful story. I became my own advocate when my doctor kept telling me all my tests were “normal”. Women must learn to listen to their bodies and if the doctor won’t listen to you, change doctors. I thank God for your advocacy and for allowing you to use your test to give your testimony.

    I’m so happy I didn’t keep strolling pass the the Title Breathe, this is a awesome Movie, I’m so happy they both survived, I didn’t know it was based on real life experience, everyone needs to know this information, it is sad that we know so little about what’s happening in our life, this also tells Moms and Dads to go further and reach out for second opinion, although we want to believe our Doctors they aren’t always righ. I loss several of my babies years ago, and today I never got complete answers to why it kept happening, still birth is a hard loss to deal with, if my Doctor and I would of search deeper maybe it wouldn’t.kept happening,

    Bravo! I just watched the movie on netflix. It just so happens I am in the midst of making flight arrangements to go to my daughter who is having complications and is dealing with a doctor similar to the knew in the story. It just so happens my daughter us a nurse much like the one portrayed in the story.
    Her blood pressure rose and she went to another doctor who called her present doctor and told my daughters doctor, either you make her an appointment with a cardiologist or I will. Your call but she’s going!
    Today she tried to reach her same doctor with issues and all she got was voice mails
    Well Momma is on her way and We are SO ON THE SAME PAGE.
    She only has weeks to go and I’m going to make sure she and my grandson make to that birth day safely!
    Your movie and story reminds me how too often patients are told it’s in their head. Thank you for sharing your story!

    I was also surfing Netflix and decided to watch this movie. I was amazed to see what it was about because most people I talk to about pre-eclampsia have no clue about it, and is usually surprised when I tell them what I went through during pregnancy. I experienced pre-eclampsia with two pregnancies and did not realize the seriousness of it the first time around. In 2006, I had my son two months early after flying from Germany to Louisiana. Because of the complications, the doctor even recommended I have no more children after my second child. You see, I was already 28 when I had my first child and is currently 37.
    Your movie really hit home for me. Thank you for bringing awareness to the severity of pre-eclampsia, and all that you do to promote women health. I pray God’s blessing on you and your family, and that your business continue to prosper in Jesus’ name.

    Angela, WOW! I just watched the movie “Breathe” on Netflix and it brought back some memories of mine that occurred almost 14 years ago. I was diagnosed with Preeclampsia before giving birth to my daughter in May 2002. We had scheduled to induce and I went in to have my daughter. After I gave birth to my daughter I lost a great deal of blood and my blood pressure went from being too high to bottoming out. Although I woke up 6 hours after they got be stable, this experience changed my life a great deal. I’m so glad my doctors knew what was going on with me and I was yelling at my laptop screen because I knew what was going on. It gives me hope you were able to survive your ordeal! As for that doctor, a good lawsuit would teach him a lesson or two! Keep up the fight girl!!

I also have lupus and I knew the pain in my upper right abdominal area wasn’t normal (a sign) I was having headaches on and off (another sign) through out the pregnancy but my blood pressure wasn’t extremely high until the day I went to the local emergency room where I was diagnosed with pre-e (I wasn’t told until I was on the ambulance but the paramedic). I had no swelling and no dizziness. but I was sent straight to duke medical center on ambulance. I was in the bed for 4 days while they tried to get my blood pressure under control then my platelets started dropping (another sign)

    I can relate to this movie because I had preclampysia when I was pregnant with my son. It was a scarey feeling my son stop breathing during my labor so I was rushed into an emergency c-section. It all happened so fast my baby had to stay in the hospital a lil longer than usual. But by the grace of God my son is now 6 years of age. We are blessed and mothering my miracle baby was the gift of my lifetime. I was a mom at 16 but I don’t regret my experience. At all. God works in mysterious ways. Me and my son could’ve lost our life March 1,2010 but nobody but God kept us. The movie Breathe was great I would watch it over and over

    The exact same thing happened to me almost 16 years ago. I wish I had understood that I had the right to fire my doctor and find another provider. I should have been on bed rest, under strict monitoring, and in the hospital weeks before I was.

    When I watched your movie, with my now almost 16-year old daughter, I cried. Thank you for what you did, putting this movie out there to educate pregnant women and the men supporting them. I felt like your portrayal and Nurse Nancy were the truest things onscreen.

    Hi. I just watched your movie. It it really touched home when my mother was pregnant with me she had the same issues. A week after I was born a month early my mother died. The very exact things you had were what was wrong with her. I know this because my adoptive parents who are my biological aunt and uncle told me . After they got full custody of me I was in and out of hospitals monthly sometimes even weekly until about the age of 12. They worried about my blood pressure and heart rate and everything going on with me that sometimes it makes me scared to have a child of my own. I have been pregnant before when I was 16 but I had a misscaraige because I didn’t know and was involved in so many sport activities. I know yourasking how did you not know… well bbecause I had no symptoms and had a period all three months that I was pregnant. My soon to be husband and I have been trying and I’m very scared I really do want a child but sometimes I feel like something is going to happen to me just like it did my mom. I know I shouldn’t think that but sometimes its so hard. Thank you for letting me share my story. I very much enjoyed yours even though I cried. As soon as you almost fainted at work I knew what was wrong with you and if any doctor did that to me his job and life would be on the line. But thank you so much again. God is with us every step of the way, just have faith in him!!!!

    I just watched this amazing movie with my family. I was drawn in just by the title alone. From the beginning to the end I was glued to the television screen because I knew the message in this film was great. I was so touched by the blessings that Angela and her family was given. I was praying right along with them while watching the movie knowing that God was going to make it alright.

    These doctors don’t know everything and this movie proved it. Being in that situation I would have tried another doctor for a second opinion . 12 years ago I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl through a c-section . My pregnancy and delivery was fine up till after I delivered. I loss so much blood that I had to get a blood transfusion in order to save my life.

    Angela Burgin Logan, you are a beautiful blessed soul with a beautiful daughter.

    I had this movie in My List on Netflix & decided to watch it. Without knowing it was a true story, I thought it was a good movie. I love watching movies that are true stories – there is always a lesson or testimony in them, in my opinion. Shame on that Dr. for not listening or paying attention to what Angela.was expressing. Thanks Angela for sharing your story.

    Seven years ago I was a victim of eclampsia! I had three seizures seven days after the delivery of my daughter! I developed a blood clot in my lungs, swelling on my brain and was going into congestive heart failure! I lost 60 pounds in seven days which was fluid! I thank God me and my daughter survived! I was looking on Netflix and seen this movie and it brought back all the feelings! There is a awesome God!

    Good morning,

    As I was going through Netflix the movie Title caught my attention ( Breathe). I enjoyed watching this movie. It just goes to show us woman when it comes down to our bodies during pregnancy no matter what we know our bodies and to allow no one to tell us any different. I sit and think of all my pregnancies which were different from the next and the last one which had my love, my partner more over protective. I thank God for everything in life.

    I just watched the movie “Breathe” and I am overcome with emotion. I am going through a particularly rough time in my life that has nothing to do with pregnancy. However, this movie brought things into perspective for me. It helped me to understand that if “Angela” can make it through such an ordeal, with baby in tow, then God is certainly good. I am amazed by you, your comeback and your ability to share your gift with the world. You are truly a GIFT. Thank you for your story. It let’s me know, this too-whatever it is-WILL PASS. God bless you and thank you. You are in my prayers.

    This story was so familiar to me I lost weight during my pregnancy but my son was gaining weight. I couldn’t sleep comfortably I was having terrible back pain and went into the hospital at 3:00 am one morning they gave me the hardest time and kept asking if I had been having sex and chalked it off to a UTI this went on for weeks with the only remedy being Percocet. I finally had a c section my son was fine I began to swell after going home and returned to the ER where I was admitted and had several seizures I was put into a coma and intubated. I stayed in a coma for 3 days woke up pulled the tubes out and started breathing on my own. My son and I are fine now I have gone on to complete my associates in fashion merchandising and currently working on my bachelors at Howard in Fashion design. this movie took me back to that experience the doctor said to me you never had a baby before and I respond neither have you ! this movie was really good Im hoping that people learn from it

    So surreal….I just watched your movie on Netflix. It was like I was walking down memory lane. In 1988 I survived this same thing…short term for it is called Toxemia. Shortly after finding out I was pregnant, the newspaper in Memphis,TN had a front page article with pics of grandparents holding a grandchild with sad faces describing how they were left to raise thier grandchild and/or grandchildren due to thier daughters death while giving birth. While reading the article I prayed and rebuked death over myself…..well that article never stated what caused Preclamysia “possibly misspelled”…..during my first few months I hsd the same experiences and no one knew what was wrong, but I continued to pray and rebuke Satan’s snares….I survived in spite of the doctors prognosis told to my loved ones the said I wouldn’t survive and my parents needed to prepare to raisse my daughter as thier own…I spent a few weeks in the hospital…..my next pregnancy 6 years later I experienced the same problem, had to be rushed in st 7 months in my pregnancy and deliver due to bleeding nonstop, my son’s dad said the house looked like someone was stabbed to death due to the amount of blood all over the floors in the house, but once again God spared my life in spite of the toxemia ….I tried telling that doctor about my previous troubles and health mstter and he too didn’t listen and had the nerves to tell me he was the medical professional and not me….well thank God my last pregnancy 15 years ago now…pregnant with my third and last child this doctor listened and told me he would watch for signs and had knowledge about the symptoms…so I was assigned to a Nutritionist who oversaw my food choices….this pregnancy was done eithout complication or life threatening circumstances. Your movie was a Godsend…I was just sitting around feeling unloved by God and He allowed me to see the title of this movie which drew my interest…through watching “Breathe” I remembered two of my near death experiences where God showed up and showed out!!!!!! I am loved by the Creator!!!! I always wondered what became of Mr. Logan the singer from the play “Whatever She Wants” with Vivica Fox and Boris”….Amen to your beautiful story and family….

    Samson you a good husband you know you showed up and showed out and when you told those doctors you don’t know my God all my wife needs is that 20% you had those doctors looking at you like what what are you talking about and guess what that’s all God I wanted to see if he was going to sign off on your wife’s life or give it and leave it up to him and when you showed him your faith was in his hand hey everything came through for you

    An eye opener to say the least! I am 25 years young and I decided to watch your film on Netflix because I just kept seeing it as i scrolled through… I have been thinking of starting a family in 1-2 years from now with my partner and I did not think about all of the potential signals/abnormalities in pregnancies. I just wanted to say that your film really opened my eyes and my partner will be watching this again with me so that we can know the signs of what could happen, even if it won’t I will be happy that we did take the time out to research and know the history of all the ladies who have lived and learned from these maternal and challenges we women may go through. Again, this was very inspiring and worth the watch!!! Thank You.
