World Preeclampsia Day is celebrated on May 22 each year around the world to raise awareness about this hypertensive disorder, its causes, symptoms, preventive measures, and treatment. Preeclampsia is a condition where you have new-onset high blood pressure and at least one associated symptom, such as protein in the urine, during pregnancy or after delivery. You may also have low levels of platelets, which are blood cells that help blood clot, or indicators of kidney or liver problems, Healthline says.

Causes of preeclampsia

According to Healthline, likely causes of preeclampsia include genetic factors, blood vessel problems, autoimmune disorders, having twins or triplets, being over the age of 40, being pregnant for the first time, having preeclampsia in a previous pregnancy, having a family history of preeclampsia and obesity can increase the risk of being diagnosed with this condition.

Symptoms of preeclampsia

Some common signs and symptoms of preeclampsia include persistent headache, pain in the upper abdomen, unusual swelling in the hands and face, sudden weight gain, nausea or vomiting, shortness of breath, and vision changes.

Treatment of preeclampsia

The treatment for preeclampsia during pregnancy is delivery. Healthline states that if you are 37 weeks or older, your doctor can induce labor. At this point, your baby has developed enough to not be considered premature. If you have pre-eclampsia before 37 weeks, your doctor will consider the health of you and your baby when deciding when to deliver. This depends on many factors, including your baby’s gestational age, whether or not labor has started, and how severe the disease has become.

Although, according to the Preeclampsia Foundation, once the baby is born, the symptoms of preeclampsia usually resolve within 48 hours. Research has found that for many women with preeclampsia, symptoms resolve and liver and kidney function return to normal within a few months. The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development says that postpartum preeclampsia usually occurs between 48 hours and 6 weeks after delivery.
