While is most commonly occurs in the prepartum period, preeclampsia can occur up to 6 wks postpartum.  In this chapter, we review as case of pre-eclampsia that occurred 6 days post-partum. The etiology of pre-eclampsia is not well understood. Symptoms and signs include headache, vision changes, nausea or vomiting, abdominal pain, hypertension, chest pain and altered mental status.  Early identification and treatment is important to maternal (and fetal) health.

Erin F. -

Is a BMI greater than 27 really considered Obese for pregnancy??

Heidi J., MD -

Hey Erin - Looks like you caught a mis-speak! According to ACOG (https://www.acog.org/Patients/FAQs/Obesity-and-Pregnancy), "Overweight" is a BMI over 25 and "Obese" is a BMI over 30. Thanks for pointing this out. Heidi
