In brief: Yes
This process can cause harm to the baby and kill the mother. It is something that should be closely managed with meds and followup.

In brief: Yes
In the sense that it is an issue that needs to be managed during pregnancy.
Usually pregnancy induced hypertension is either preeclampsia or not. If it is preeclampsia, then you need to determine if it is mild or severe. If it is gestational hypertension then as long as your blood pressure is controlled and the baby's growth is ok, then you can deliver at 39 to 40 weeks.
