Our client presented to the maternity assessment unit with visual disturbances and high blood pressure. She was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia however no further action was taken.

One week later, she again presented with significant increased blood pressure, severe headache and abnormal urine analysis. Again, no further action was taken.

The following day, our client was admitted (now with a blood pressure in excess of 171/103), however suffered an eclamptic fit before delivery could be achieved. She then underwent an emergency caesarean section.

Our client suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder following the birth and continues to suffer with ongoing a generalised anxiety disorder.
