sometimes growth retardation of the baby can occur in pregnancy induced hypertension due to inadequate blood supply to the fetus causing decreased nutritional supply,
if her blood pressure is control with drugs she can continue to the pregnancy till term gestation, but if blood pressure becomes high even with medicines or any complications develop which can affect the health of the mother and baby then she may preterm delivery.
don't worry with proper care you can complete her gestational period and can have healthy baby.
take care.
