Abstract:

One of the most common disorders seen in pregnancy today falls into the realm of “hypertensive disorders of pregnancy” occurring in 12-22% of pregnancies. Understanding the classification and management of this population of patients will allow for better care and improved outcomes. Not only do these disorders account for 17% of maternal mortality in the United States but also account for one of the leading causes of premature birth which increases neonatal morbidity and mortality. National and International organizations have developed guidelines for the management of hypertensive disorders in pregnancy to reduce maternal mortality. These organizations include the American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecologists (ACOG), National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), and Society for Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC). This presentation will review some of the guidelines developed and the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to the management of patients with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.

Abstract:

Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy affect up to 10% of all pregnancies and are responsible for 50-76,000 global maternal deaths annually. In this presentation we will review the definitions, etiology, clinical signs and management guidelines for Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy. We’ll learn the origins of the Brewer Pregnancy Diet recommended by many midwives and childbirth educators to promote a healthy pregnancy, and discuss its strengths and needs as a modern template for prenatal nutrition. Bringing it all together, we will examine current evidence for nutritional interventions on pre-eclampsia/hypertensive disorders.
