Australian Action on Preeclampsia has become aware of the refugee woman on Nauru who is currently 37 weeks pregnant and who has developed preeclampsia together with other pregnancy complications. Preeclampsia can become life threatening very rapidly, and the only cure available is delivery of the baby. In order to achieve the best possible outcome for this woman and her baby we urge the Australian Government to transfer her as soon as possible to an appropriate tertiary medical facility.
