Preeclampsia in Pregnancy









Preeclampsia is the most common condition experienced by pregnant women, and is characterized by high blood pressure and protein in the urine. It is one of the leading causes of maternal and infant death.  Additionally, doctors will likely try and induce birth as soon as  possible, as preeclampsia usually affects the amount of oxygen delivered to the placenta and delivery is the      definitive treatment.

Research shows that higher Vitamin D levels reduce the risk of preeclampsia, as well as other diseases.

The Vitamin D Council recommends pregnant women supplement with between 5,000-10,000 IU of vitamin D3 daily.
