Chronic hypertension in pregnancy is associated with increased hospitalization due to new complications or the deterioration of pre-existing comorbidities . Also, there is an increased risk of placental abruption, vascular accidents, gestational diabetes, and C-section . In Qatar, evidence is lacking on the aforementioned issue despite the increasing trend of hypertension and its risk factors. So, we aimed to identify the maternal outcomes among pregnant women with chronic hypertension at a tertiary maternity facility in Doha, Qatar.
