In brief: Delivery of baby
Because the patient usually presents with liver failure, kidney failure, and whole host of associated potentially life threatening conditions, the best option is to get the baby delivered and then deal with all of the maternal complications.
Maternal and fetal mortality approaches 25% and may even require liver transplant for the mother.
