In brief: Danger

Preeclampsia is a serious complication of pregnancy.
It consists of retained fluids, high blood pressure and the kidneys not being able to control protein loss. Delivery is the cure. Medications can be used to stabilize the event and to gain a little lung maturation time. The greatest complication is a seizure and transient liver damage.
