The long term effects of preeclampsia and eclampsia on infant health will be presented. Preeclampsia affects almost 10% of all pregnancies and globally is responsible for 76,000 maternal and 500,000 infant deaths each year (about preeclampsia, 2019). The exact cause of preeclampsia and eclampsia is unknown. Preeclampsia is associated with increased risk of stroke, organ failure, death, and the seizures from epilepsy can be fatal for both mother and infant (Bibbins-Domingo et al., 2017). The etiology of these conditions will be presented in relation to infant morbidity and mortality throughout the lifespan. It is anticipated that preeclampsia and eclampsia increase the risk of infant epilepsy, heart disease, and other chronic conditions and disorders. Results will be discussed.
