Pregnancy Poisoning

  1. Preeclampsia is a disease that can occur during pregnancy or shortly after childbirth. More and more women are affected, because women start having children at an increasingly later age. The risk of preeclampsia is more common in women over 35 years old.

  1. Preeclampsia usually occur after the 24th week of pregnancy. The disease can occur up to 72 hours after delivery. Do you not have symptoms yet? Then the danger of preeclampsia has passed.

What are the symptoms?

  1. Tense in the upper abdomen. Swollen hands and ankles or a swollen face (edema). Tingling in the fingers. Visual disturbances (flashing lights or seeing asterisks). If you are pregnant and regularly suffer from the above complaints, it is wise to contact your midwife or doctor. He or she will then test your urine, measure your blood pressure and, if necessary, do a blood test.

Risk factors

  1. As mentioned before, one of the risk factors for preeclampsia is your age. The chance is higher when you are older than 35 years. Pre-pregnancy poisoning is also more common in a first pregnancy and in multiple pregnancies. Hereditary factors also play a role. Has your mother or sister had preeclampsia? Then the chance that you will also get it is greater. Even if you had preeclampsia during a previous pregnancy, the risk is higher than normal. A number of diseases that increase the risk of preeclampsia are: diabetes, coagulation disorders, metabolic disorders and high blood pressure. So always report to your midwife that you have an illness. This way she can take this into account and be extra alert.

What are the consequences of preeclampsia?

  1. Due to preeclampsia, certain organs no longer function properly. Your blood vessels, kidneys and liver will not work as well. Preeclampsia can generally be treated with medicines to lower your blood pressure. In addition, you will have to rest. The complaints will then probably diminish. If not detected in time, preeclampsia can develop into a more harmful variant: HELLP syndrome and eclampsia. Both diseases are very similar to preeclampsia, but are much more serious in nature. In most cases, this will lead to hospitalization. Sometimes it is decided to induce birth early. This is on average from the 29th week of pregnancy.
