Pregnant women diagnosed to have:

  • mild pre-eclampsia,
  • chronic hypertension
  • gestational hypertension

should be referred without any intervention by you, preferably on the day of diagnosis.

Why do you think referral is necessary, even though the hypertension is not severe?

Show answer

This is because sometimes the mild form of hypertension may progress to the severe type in a very short period of time.
