Preeclampisa Attorney in Kansas City, MO

Call (816) 253-8606 If You or Your Baby Suffered Because of Preeclampisa in Missouri

Preeclampsia is a relatively common condition that is estimated to affect about 1 out of 20 pregnant women. It is characterized by an increase in blood pressure after approximately the 20th week of pregnancy.

If unrecognized or mismanaged, preeclampsia places both mother and baby at risk of serious injury or even death. As such, it is imperative for pregnant women to be monitored for preeclampsia and to be diagnosed if they display symptoms of this dangerous condition.

While there is no treatment for preeclampsia, mild cases may benefit from bed rest and dietary changes, or an early delivery by C-section or induction may be recommended.

Preeclampsia Symptoms

The following are the most common symptoms of preeclampsia:

  • High blood pressure
  • Protein in the urine
  • Edema (swelling of the hands, ankles, or face)
  • Severe headaches
  • Rapid weight gain over one or two days
  • Abdominal pain
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Blurred vision or other vision problems
  • Nausea and vomiting

Your doctor should know the symptoms of preeclampsia and should immediately inform you and work out a plan to address this condition once it has been diagnosed.

Managing Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia is pregnancy-induced and will persist as long as the pregnancy lasts. There are methods that can help with mild cases of preeclampsia if a baby is not developed enough for delivery:

  • Bed rest
  • Increased prenatal checkups and testing
  • Decrease in salt consumption
  • Increase in protein consumption
  • Increase in water consumption

If preeclampsia is diagnosed and the baby is sufficiently developed, usually around 34 weeks of gestation, an early delivery via C-section or induced vaginal birth may be recommended. In severe cases, medication may be administered to lower the mother’s blood pressure and speed up the baby’s lung development.
