welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
the only known treatment of eclampsia is delivery of after delivery chances of eclampsia is very less
but postpartum pre eclampsia can occur till 4 to 6 weeks. if you have headaches and
edema then consult your gynecologist about it
try to reduce your blood pressure by life style modification and if needed antihypertensive agents.
take care
