In brief: Small babies
Pregnancy-induced hypertension (pih) has several risks associated with it.
Because of decreased blood blow to the uterus babies can be small or have low amniotic fluid levels, this increases their risk of distress. Placental abruption or stroke can occur if blood pressures are very high. Pih is also a risk factor for developing pre-eclampsia or eclampsia.
