INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO DEVELOP PREECLAMPSIA DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is preeclampsia syndrome in pregnancy?

Preeclampsia is a condition that can develop during pregnancy, after 20 weeks of gestation, or after delivery. The condition is characterized by the emergence of high blood pressure (more than 140 mm Hg systolic, or more than 90 mm Hg diastolic), along with kidney problems that cause proteinuria (protein in the urine at levels higher than 300 mg per 24 hours) or problems with other organs. Any preeclampsia should be viewed as a severe condition, but the high blood pressure element of preeclampsia is defined as severe if the systolic pressure climbs higher than 160 mm Hg, or the diastolic pressure climbs higher than 110 mmHg.
