Preeclampsia is a serious disease related to high blood pressure that usually occurs in the second half of pregnancy. Preeclampsia affects 5–8%1,2 of all pregnancies and can happen to any woman, during any pregnancy.
When high blood pressure results in the delivery of a baby before 34 weeks of pregnancy, it’s called “early onset preeclampsia” and is often a more dangerous form of the disease. Left untreated, it can lead to life-threatening complications for both you and your baby.
That’s why it’s important to talk to your doctor about how you can be screened for early onset preeclampsia.
