What is the treatment for pre-eclampsia?

The treatment for pre-eclampsia may depend on how far along your pregnancy is and how serious your condition is. The only cure for pre-eclampsia is to deliver the baby. Mild cases of pre-eclampsia may be treated with close monitoring of blood pressure and lots of rest to help improve the blood flow to the placenta. In some cases, medication may be used to help control blood pressure and prevent complications.
