Detailed Description:

The hypertensive disorders in pregnancy affecting 5-8% of pregnant women worldwide, contributing significantly to maternal and fetal complications. Various forms of hypertensive disorders occurring during pregnancy, including preeclampsia and chronic hypertension with superimposed preeclampsia. These two disorders present with high blood pressure and proteinuria, and often lead to the hospitalization of pregnant women.

The objective is to evaluate the effectiveness of a physical therapy protocol used in pregnant women with preeclampsia on blood pressure, maternal-fetal outcomes and perinatal outcomes.

Participants in the study pregnant women with preeclampsia and hypertension with superimposed pre-eclampsia, hospitalized, with no significant complications that may impair the normal course of pregnancy. All pregnant women are monitored through laboratory and clinical data and the fetus monitored by tests that assessed their vitality, in addition, pregnant women in the intervention group performed the proposed physiotherapeutic the study protocol.
