Dangers Of Untreated Pre-Eclampsia
In most situations, pre-eclampsia develops after 20 weeks of pregnancy. However, it can begin as late as four to six weeks postpartum. Without treatment, pre-eclampsia can lead to serious or fatal complications for both the mother and baby. When a mother’s blood pressure is too high, it cuts off the blood flow to the baby, which prevents the baby from receiving needed food and nutrients. When left untreated, pre-eclampsia can also cause:
- Liver problems
- Eye problems
- Placental abruption
