This is one of the main causes of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. Early detection of pre-eclampsia is key for the survival of the mother and the foetus. Pre-eclampsia is a serious complication which occurs in 3-5% of pregnancies. Sometimes pre-eclampsia does not cause symptoms, high blood pressure can appear suddenly or slowly. Women with chronic hypertension and existing conditions before pregnancy require special medical supervision and follow-up.
