Eclampsia

Till date, the cause of eclampsia remains unknown. Yet, it has been understood that if pre-eclampsia is not controlled, it can lead to eclampsia. Though very few cases of eclampsia are reported in India, a high risk of pre-eclampsia is usually associated with pregnant women who are too young (teenage) or too old (over 40 years of age), and in women with hypertension or kidney disease, among others.

Every pregnant woman must keep herself informed about the dangers of eclampsia, especially in a first-time pregnancy. For more details on the condition and its prevention, join our support group today.
