“Lian’s Law” was signed by the Governor on Friday and works to spread awareness about preeclampsia.
The law is named after a woman who died months after giving birth to twins due to preeclampsia.
Preeclampsia is a condition that develops in pregnant women usually caused by high blood pressure.
Lian Shalala Gravelle, the woman the law is named after, dedicated her life to educating women on the dangers of health conditions that can develop from pregnancy.
The bill will allow the health department to add information about preeclampsia and start an educational outreach program.
