The aim of this study was to assess the risk factors of preeclampsia among mothers at Al-Sbeen Hospital in Sana’a City, Yemen.

Subjects and methods

A hospital-based case control study was carried out at Al-Sbeen Hospital in Sana’a City. The total sample size was 206 and divided into 103 cases and 103 controls. Data were collected from 2014 to 2016. A designed chart was used to collect data from the medical files.


Young and advanced mother’s age, living in rural areas, prior preeclampsia, prior hypertension, prior anemia, multiple pregnancy, gestational age, family history of preeclampsia, history of previous abortion and cesarean, and induction modes of delivery were determinant factors of preeclampsia (p < 0.05).


The determinants of preeclampsia in this study can be prevented by health education, increased awareness of the community and encouraging women to attend health services. Changing these factors can decrease preeclampsia related to maternal factors.
