Babies born at 30 weeks have a greater than 90% survival rate (maybe 95%) and a small risk of long-term problems (maybe 5%). They will usually be in the hospital until their due date - maybe out a week or so earlier.
Once admitted to the hospital, placed on MgSO4 and BP controlled, the risk to mother is low. The disease usually gets worse for a day or two postpartum before it gets better.

They admitted my daughter to the hospital yesterday with preeclampsia. They will be doing a c-section within the next 48 hours. The baby will be 10 weeks early. Since theyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ve diagnosed it and she is receiving medication for blood pressure and seizuresÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦is it still life threatening to her or the baby? What are the babyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s chances of being born healthy and normal at this stage in her develpment?
