Welcome to the volume 3, issue 1 of Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology. This issue is focused on pre-eclampsia, a significant health concern in the maternal fetal medicine arena.

Our journal is peer-reviewed, and we invite your interest and future submissions. Our eventual goal is to become indexed in Medline, so your support in submitting the most interesting clinical studies, reviews and basic research manuscripts is particularly valuable as we move forward. We see one of the main goals of our journal to be providing a forum for the publishing of case reports.

On behalf of the Editorial Board and Susan Schwartz-Rogers, Managing Editor, we hope you enjoy our current issue.
