    Chronic high blood pressure or hypertension in the pregnant females can lead to the development of “preeclampsia” where proteins are secreted in the urine of the pregnant female. This condition holds serious concerns and can cause complications in the pregnancy.

    Hypertension during pregnancy is associated with preeclampsia which reduces the blood flow towards the fetus. The baby can suffer from liver or kidney damage, seizures and even fetal death, which can also lead up to the death of the mother.
