Abstract

              Eclampsia is a leading cause of health problems among pregnant women which may occur at home, at the hospital before taking magnesium sulfate, and at the hospital after taking magnesium sulfate. Eclampsia may occur after 24 hours after birth. Therefore, the role of nurses and midwives in screening and preventing eclampsia, caring for pregnant women with eclampsia is very important to prevent repeated eclampsia. Nursing care for women during pregnancy, labour, and postpartum periods, including newborns should be planned. Caring for newborns of mothers with eclampsia is also necessary to reduce complications as well as maternal and child mortality.
