Mistakes made by medical professionals during pregnant, labor, and delivery don’t just affect the baby. There are conditions that can also affect the mother’s health and life. If you or someone you love suffered with preeclampsia during your pregnancy and your doctor neglected to provide appropriate medical treatment for it, speak with a Preeclampsia Lawyer to have your case evaluated. title
What Is Preeclampsia?
Preeclampsia is a serious and dangerous health condition experienced by pregnant women generally starting in the second trimester. It occurs when the mother has high blood pressure higher than 140/90. There are other symptoms, too, including:
- Swelling of your hands and feet;
- Blurred vision;
- Vomiting; and
- Being short of breath.
Dangers of Preeclampsia
High blood pressure on its own is already dangerous. It’s even more dangerous for pregnant women. You could have a seizure or even go into a coma. It can also harm your baby. If you have symptoms of preeclampsia, it is important that your doctor treat you for it to protect both you and your baby.
Generally, you will be prescribed a medication to help you control your blood pressure without hurting your baby. While there is no cure, if it isn’t properly treated, it can kill you or your baby. If you or your baby suffered an injury because your preeclampsia wasn’t properly treated, a Philadelphia birth injury attorney can help you get the compensation that you deserve.
Reducing the Risks of Preeclampsia
If you suspect that you may have preeclampsia, the first thing to do is visit with your doctor. Your doctor will evaluate your symptoms and your blood pressure. If you have preeclampsia, you will have to undergo a regimen that includes medication and monitoring. This is to protect both you and your baby. You can help yourself by getting as much rest as possible, eliminating as much stress as you can, and taking your medication as prescribed. It will also be important for you to keep an eye on your blood pressure.
