AbstractBackground:Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (PIH) is a life-threatening complication of pregnancy which adversely affects the maternal and perinatal outcome. Most of the deaths associated with PIH occur due to its adverse effects. Proper management of these complications can improve the perinatal outcome. The present study was aimed to find out the perinatal outcome associated with PIH.
Method: A quantitative approach with the prospective cross-sectional design was adopted to study the perinatal outcome of pregnant women with PIH in tertiary care hospital, Dehradun, Uttarakhand. Fifty-one pregnant women who diagnosed with PIH and registered in respective study centre belongs to a hilly area, is Primigravida, gestational age between 26 – 30 weeks, is experiencing at least three vascular symptoms were selected purposively. The women with PIH followed till early puerperal period. Ethical permission was taken from the Institutional Ethical Committee. Informed written consent was taken from each participant.
