Midwife checking woman's pregnancy in hospital

Preeclampsia is a disorder that occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period and affects both, mother and the unborn baby. Typically, preeclampsia occurs after 20 weeks gestation (in the late 2nd or 3rd trimesters or middle to late pregnancy) and up to six weeks postpartum, though in rare cases it can occur earlier than 20 weeks.
