Doctors Must Monitor for Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia is high blood pressure or “hypertension” brought on by pregnancy. While serious, preeclampsia is also not exactly uncommon—it affects between 5% and 10% of pregnant women. Preeclampsia must be treated and managed effectively in order to protect both mother and child.

No one knows what causes preeclampsia, but some believe the following factors make a woman more at-risk:

  • Overweight
  • Over 40 years of age
  • Multiple gestation
  • History of high blood pressure

It is the doctor’s responsibility to monitor you for signs of preeclampsia, which usually reveals itself in the late second trimester or the third trimester. In most cases, women do not notice any apparent symptoms. If untreated, however, preeclampsia can lead to serious health ramifications for both the mother and infant.

What Is HELLP Syndrome?

HELLP stands for:

  • Hemolysis / red blood cell breakdown
  • Elevated liver enzymes
  • Low Platelet count

This condition usually appears in the third trimester of pregnancy, and it is extremely rare—affecting only about 1 or 2 pregnancies per 1,000. Women with preeclampsia are much more at risk. Between 10% and 20% of pregnant women with preeclampsia will be diagnosed with HELLP syndrome.
