Most women have a normal pregnancy without complications. However, pre-eclampsia is a relatively common, yet serious complication, affecting between two and eight out of every 100 pregnancies, that may develop during pregnancy (at any time after 20 weeks of pregnancy) and up to six weeks after delivery. It can affect both the pregnant woman and her unborn baby. If the risk for preterm pre-eclampsia is detected in time, the development of the condition can be monitored and prevented.6,7,8
It is important to get screened for the risk of pre-eclampsia as early as possible in the pregnancy to allow adequate time for the doctor managing the pregnancy to ensure that treatment4,7,9 is started at the right time.
You can find out your risk of developing pre-eclampsia between 11 and 14 weeks of pregnancy.6,7 Pre-eclampsia screening is needed to determine if you are at high risk for pre-eclampsia. The screening includes a blood test, a blood pressure measurement, and, if available, an ultrasound. Screening for the risk of pre-eclampsia is an important step you can take to protect your health and that of your baby.
