Hello. : Hello. My understanding is that preeclampsia is defined as the new onset of elevated blood pressure and protein in the urine after 20 weeks of gestation. It often develops during the second half of a pregnancy or up to 6 weeks after the birth. It may be detected through blood pressure elevation and evaluation of blood/urine in the early stages.
