Gestational Hypertension ( High Blood Pressure ) Preeclampsia and Placental Abruption
The video bellow was made by the March of Dimes and discusses high blood pressure during pregnancy and preeclampsia. Both high blood pressure and preeclampsia can be dangerous to both mother and child.
As discussed in my last post preeclampsia and high blood during pregnancy can lead to a placental abruption which may deprive a child of oxygen causing brain damage to the child and cerebral palsy. For more information on placental abruptions please see my post dated 4/25/09
