Pre-eclampsia is not rare so it is worth finding out something about it. About 7% of all pregnancies are affected by pre-eclampsia. Sometimes it just needs to be monitored, sometimes it can rapidly deteriorate and the treatment for you and your baby becomes a decision about whether your baby is better off ‘out than in’.

In this episode we cover:

  • What is high blood pressure
  • What are the signs and symptoms of pre-eclampsia
  • Who is at risk of developing pre-eclampsia
  • What you can do to help with high blood pressure
  • How we treat pre-eclampsia


Why did we start this podcast? Well we think there is a barrier for women to get EXPERT pregnancy info that is practical, relatable and easy to understand.

Dr Pat has helped 1000s of women have their babies and through this we know that this kind of information given to a woman at the right time can totally change her experience of pregnancy and birth.
