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.
