Portland Preeclampsia Lawyer
With proper diagnosis, monitoring and medication, a mother suffering preeclampsia or pregnancy-induced hypertension can safely deliver a healthy child. However, when a doctor fails to treat a patient suffering high blood pressure while pregnant, he or she puts the health of the mother and child at risk.Preeclampsia is characterized by high blood pressure developed late in the pregnancy. Once diagnosed, the patient must be monitored carefully due to the risk of seizures and bleeding disorders. Medication can help. However, if the pregnancy-induced hypertension worsens, the baby must be delivered to save the life of the mother.
