Maternal and perinatal outcome of expectant management was studied in 52 women with severe preeclampsia admitted between 24–34 weeks of gestation. Pregnancies could be prolonged by an average of 9 days and the average birth weight was 1238 g (SD 338). The overall perinatal survival was 85.4% and it was 66% among babies weighing less than 1000 g suggesting that use of expectant management for preterm severe preeclampsia is feasible in the Indian setup.
