Materials and methods. 5711 patient’s records of the year 2008 and 6188 patient’s records of the year 2009 of Obstetric/Gynecologic hospital ‘Queen Geraldina’ have been consulted. The age of women that we studied in 2008 was between 23-35 and in 2009 was be-tween 25-34 years old. We have made a careful diagnose of inducted hypertension of pregnancy and preeclampsia.

Preeclampsia FAQs

Preeclampsia can appear at any time during pregnancy, delivery and up to six weeks post-partum, though it most frequently occurs in the final trimester and resolves within 48 hours of delivery. Preeclampsia can develop gradually, or come on quite suddenly, even flaring up in a matter of hours, though the signs and symptoms may have gone undetected for weeks or months.

Alternative packages of antenatal care for low-risk pregnant women | Cochrane

A routine number of visits for pregnant women has developed as part of antenatal or prenatal care without evidence of how much care is necessary to optimise the health of mothers and babies, and what is helpful for the women. These visits can include tests, education and other health checks. The review set out to compare studies where women receiving standard care were compared with women attending on a reduced number of occasions. We included seven randomised controlled trials involving more than 60,000 women. We assessed studies for risk of bias and graded the quality of the evidence. The trials were carried out in both high-income (four trials) and low- and middle-income countries (three trials). In high-income countries the number of visits was reduced to around eight. In lower-income countries many women in the reduced visits group attended for care on fewer than five occasions, although the content of visits was altered so as to focus on specific goals. In this review there was no strong evidence of differences between groups receiving a reduced number of antenatal visits compared with standard care on the number of preterm births or low birthweight babies (moderate-quality evidence). However, there was some evidence from these trials that in low- and middle-income countries perinatal mortality may be increased with reduced visits (low-quality evidence) although there may have been fewer admissions to neonatal intensive care but the evidence for this latter outcome was not strong. There was no clear difference between groups for our other primary outcomes including maternal death and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (including pre-eclampsia). There was evidence that women in all settings were less satisfied with the reduced schedule of visits; for some women the gap between visits was perceived as too long. Reduced visits may be associated with lower costs.

Vitamin E supplementation in pregnancy | Cochrane

Does giving vitamin E supplementation, alone or in combination with other vitamins, given to women during pregnancy improve outcomes for their babies by reducing the incidence of pre-eclampsia and the number of babies born too early? Or does it cause harm?

Prof Asif Ahmed: Protecting Lives During Pregnancy

Preeclampsia is a condition in pregnancy that kills in the region of 70,000 mothers and 500,000 infants each year worldwide. It's characterised by high blood pressure and excess protein in the urine after 20 weeks of pregnancy in a woman who previously had normal blood pressure. Left unchecked, the condition leads to serious complications: for the mother, damage to the kidneys and other organs; for the baby, growth restrictions as a result of a premature delivery.

Predicting pre-eclampsia

A healthy mother and baby are the desired outcomes of all antenatal care, yet WHO estimates that every year around the world there are about 303 000 maternal deaths, 2.6 million stillbirths, and 2.7 million neonatal deaths. Pregnancy and birth are transformational life events, but optimal preparation for transition to motherhood often receives little attention.
