Long-Term Effects of Preeclampsia

In an uncomplicated case of preeclampsia or eclampsia, there are essentially no long-term effects seen in the mother. The mother is at no greater risk for developing high blood pressure (hypertension) in the future.
 
However, for the fetus and newborn, the long-term effects of preeclampsia are more difficult to predict. Depending on the severity of preeclampsia, there is an increased risk for growth retardation and fetal distress.
