Answer

Women with preeclampsia with severe features who have nonreassuring fetal status, ruptured membranes, labor, or maternal distress should be delivered regardless of gestational age. If a woman with preeclampsia with severe features is at 32 weeks' gestation or more and has received a course of steroids, she should be delivered as well.
