A condition that affects the second half of pregnancy. The signs of Pre-eclampsia include high blood pressure and protein in urine. In some instances swelling, headaches, pain below the ribs and problems with eyesight can occur.
Whilst usually the condition isn’t serious, pre-eclampsia can lead to more serious complications for both mum and baby. Close monitoring and early treatment is recommended because the earlier the condition is diagnosed and treatment given the better the outcome.
The NHS state that around 2% of pregnancies develop pre-eclampsia and medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, lupus or some other conditions can increase the risk of developing pre-eclampsia.
Usually pregnant mums would have tests including protein after 20 weeks of pregnancy and then at regular intervals during the term

Can I sue the NHS?
The NHS was created so that good healthcare should be available to all, and it is one of the country’s proudest achievements. However, if something goes wrong during your treatment you deserve answers and, where necessary, financial compensation.
We do not treat your claim lightly. However, the treatment you consider negligent must be considered unreasonable, irresponsible, and harmful.
When someone suffers an injury that impacts their live, or that of a loved one, then it is vital that the NHS has the procedures in place to both compensate the patient and learn from their mistakes.
