Maria Laurino tells the chilling story of her near-death from preeclampsia in her new memoir, Old World Daughter, New World Mother: An Education in Love and Freedom (Norton, 224 pp., $23.95). The five-page incident is a small part of the book but worth reading by anyone who has or is at high risk for preeclampsia, the pregnancy disorder that used to be called toxemia.
