Info below taken from the Preeclampsia Foundation website:
Preeclampsia is a disorder that occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period and affects both the mother and the unborn baby. It affects at least 5-8% of all pregnancies, that is about 1 in 12. Every 6 minutes a woman dies because of Preeclampsia, formerly called toxemia. We lose three women a week in the U.S. and many, many more babies. Preeclampsia complicates pregnancies as often as breast cancer occurs and is the most common known cause of prematurity.Signs & symptoms include high blood pressure; swelling of the hands, feet or face; protein in urine; sudden weight gain; headache; changes in vision; dizziness; and/or nausea.

You can find further information on preeclampsia at the Preeclampsia Foundation website, The Preeclampsia Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit operating organization established in the year 2000 to promote safe pregnancy and post-partum research, public education and patient support.
