What is pre-eclampsia
Pre-eclampsia is a complex condition that is still not fully understood, but may be caused by a defect in the placenta, which reduces the flow of blood and nutrients to your baby, affecting their growth and your health. Mild pre-eclampsia can affect up to 6% of first-time pregnancies, while more severe pre-eclampsia can affect around 1-2% of pregnancies.
