Results: The prevalence of pre-eclampsia was estimated to be 4.9%. No significant relationship was seen between the prevalence of preeclampsia, previous history of preeclampsia and blood pressure (p=0.07). It was also revealed that the prevalence of preeclampsia was higher in women with the first pregnancy and it decreases with increasing number of pregnancies. The result of this study indicated that the prevalence of cesarean section with preeclampsia is higher than in normal delivery.
Conclusion: The prevalence of preeclampsia in Yasuj was 4.92. it was concluded that the preeclampsia prevalence in Yasuj in 2016 is similar to that of the studies conducted around the world and our country. Although, it seems that hospitalization of pregnant mothers due to preeclampsia is not concern among other problems. Due to prevalence of preeclampsia and its complications and since prevention of this disorder is not currently possible in pregnant women therefore, timely and appropriate care should be taken during pregnancy for diagnosis in time and prevent adverse effects.
