What Are the Differences Between Preeclampsia and Eclampsia?

Q:
What are the differences between preeclampsia and eclampsia?

A:
Eclampsia is essentially preeclampsia plus seizures. When preeclampsia isn’t controlled, eclampsia can develop.

Eclampsia is much more serious but, with treatment, is rare.

You can even go into a coma and die. And, your baby might also die before, during, or after childbirth.

Working closely with your doctor can ensure that you have the safest and healthiest pregnancy possible.
