Preeclampsia is a medical condition that affects approximately 5% of pregnant women in the United States. It is typically characterized by high blood pressure and begins after 20 weeks of pregnancy in women who had previously normal blood pressure. Preeclampsia is extremely serious and can be life-threatening for mother and baby, so it is important to seek medical treatment immediately if you begin experiencing signs and symptoms of this condition.

Symptoms of preeclampsia may include:

  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Increased protein in the urine
  • Severe headaches
  • Swelling of the hands and feet
  • Changes in vision
  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Shortness of breath

When you’re pregnant, your doctor should monitor your blood pressure at every visit. Regular urine tests are also important. These are essential to recognizing the signs of preeclampsia and other conditions. If your doctor was negligent and did not diagnose or failed to properly treat preeclampsia and you or your baby suffered harm as a result, Pribanic & Pribanic, LLC can help.

WHAT CAUSES PREECLAMPSIA?

At this time, there is not a single definite cause of preeclampsia. There are some factors, however, that may increase one’s risk of developing this condition:

  • Personal or family history of preeclampsia
  • Chronic hypertension (high blood pressure) prior to pregnancy
  • Pregnancy over the age of 40
  • Obesity
  • Multiple pregnancy (twins, triplets, etc.)
  • History of migraines, diabetes, kidney disease, or lupus

Because preeclampsia can be life-threatening to mother and baby, early delivery is typically recommended. Treatment will involve weighing the risks of early delivery with the risks of managing preeclampsia to give the baby more time to develop. Our Pittsburgh birth injury attorneys can talk to you about your unique case to determine whether you were treated properly.

Call 800-392-4529 today for a free, confidential review of your case.
