Complications of preeclampsia:
 HELLP Syndrome: HELLP stands for Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes and Low Platelet count. For mother and child, it becomes life-threatening disease. After giving birth, this is a combined liver and blood clotting disorder, which appears after twentieth week of pregnancy. For effective treatment of HELLP syndrome, deliver the baby as soon as possible.
