|What is Preeclampsia?
During pregnancy 5-10% of women experience a large increase
in blood pressure, generally after the twentieth week but
also occasionally during delivery. This is Preeclampsia,
also called Pregnancy-Induced-Hypertension (PIH) or toxaemia.
The blood pressure increase is generally accompanied by
swelling and protein in the urine and is an extremely serious
condition for both the health of the baby and mother. It
can range from mild to severe.
