Takes action on Preeclampsia!
We envision a world where preeclampsia no longer threatens the lives of mothers and babies
What is preeclampsia?
Preeclampsia is a pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to another organ system, most often the liver and kidneys. Preeclampsia usually begins after 20 weeks of pregnancy in women whose blood pressure had been normal.
Left untreated, preeclampsia can lead to serious — even fatal — complications for both the mother and the baby. If you have preeclampsia, the most effective treatment is delivery of your baby.
If a woman is diagnosed with preeclampsia too early in her pregnancy to deliver the baby, she and her doctor face a challenging task. The baby needs more time to mature, but the mother need to avoid putting herself or the baby at risk of serious complications. Both have to be monitored continiously.
