|This figure shows that incidence of
preterm birth is markedly higher in women with preeclampsia (PE) than in women with
gestational hypertension (GH) and in women without pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH).
Mothers who have preeclampsia often have smaller babies. This is partly due to preterm birth or shortened gestational duration since early delivery is a consequence and the only effective treatment of preeclampsia.
