The only cure for preeclampsia is having the baby.
You may get medicines
to lower your blood pressure and to prevent seizures.
You also may get medicine
to help your baby's lungs get ready for birth.
Your doctor will try to deliver
your baby when the baby has grown enough to be ready for birth. But sometimes a
baby has to be delivered early to protect the health of the mother or the baby.
If this happens, your baby will get special care for premature babies.
