Introduction: Pre-eclampsia is a serious complication that can occur during pregnancy, characterized by high blood pressure and signs of damage to other organ systems, typically the liver and kidneys. Understanding its risks, symptoms, and management is crucial for ensuring maternal and fetal health.

Overview of Pre-Eclampsia: Pre-eclampsia is a hypertensive disorder unique to pregnancy, affecting approximately 5-8% of pregnancies worldwide. It usually develops after the 20th week of pregnancy and can lead to serious complications if left untreated.

Risk Factors: Several factors may increase the risk of developing pre-eclampsia, including a history of high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, multiple pregnancies (twins, triplets), being over the age of 35, and certain medical conditions such as kidney disease.

Symptoms: Symptoms of pre-eclampsia may include high blood pressure, swelling (particularly in the hands and face), sudden weight gain, headaches, vision changes (such as blurry vision or seeing spots), and abdominal pain, among others. However, some women may not experience any symptoms, which is why regular prenatal check-ups are crucial.

Importance of Early Detection and Monitoring: Early detection and monitoring of pre-eclampsia are essential for preventing complications. Routine prenatal care, including blood pressure monitoring and urine testing, can help identify signs of pre-eclampsia early on. Women at higher risk may require more frequent monitoring.

Management and Treatment: The management of pre-eclampsia typically involves close monitoring of both the mother and the fetus, along with possible interventions to lower blood pressure and prevent complications. Depending on the severity of the condition and the gestational age of the fetus, treatment may involve medication, bed rest, or hospitalization.
