Offering a planned early delivery to women with late preterm pre-eclampsia reduces maternal morbidity without adversely affecting neonatal morbidity, UK trial results show.

In the largest trial to date, 901 pregnant women with late-term pre-eclampsia from 34 to 37 weeks’ gestation were randomly allocated to either planned delivery within two days of randomisation or usual care (expectant management).
