Pre-eclampsia can cause stroke in a pregnant woman

April 27, 2018

It is important to know that pre-eclampsia during pregnancy can cause significant injury, such as a stroke, to a mother as well as cause harm to her unborn baby.  In fact, it almost doubles a woman’s risk of having a stroke.  Fortunately, a recent study showed that treating a mother’s high blood pressure with medication significantly lowered her risk for having a stroke. If you develop pre-eclampsia during your pregnancy, you may want to ask your doctor if high blood pressure medication would be helpful for you as well.

If you or your baby suffered an injury due to an Army, Navy or Air Force doctor or mid-wife not treating your pre-eclampsia, we can help.  You may contact us at 1-877-695-8757 (24/7), by e-mail at LawHelp@MilitaryMedicalMalpractice.com or by filling out the short form on the right side of this page.
