'Little Miracle' supports AAPEC

'Little Miracle' came about when us five women from Australia, England and the USA came together in 2013 with one thing in common; we had all experienced the life-threatening pregnancy complication, HELLP syndrome.

The purpose of the 'Little Miracle' book, written by Tabitha Thompson, is to raise awareness and money to fund even more awareness.For the rest of 2014, some of the proceeds from 'Little Miracle' will be donated to AAPEC.
