Aim: to analyze the factors associated with the neonatal outcomes of pregnant women diagnosed with severe preeclampsia. Method: This is a cross-sectional study developed in a maternity school, whose population corresponded to the fetuses/neonates of pregnant women diagnosed with severe pre-eclampsia. The sample corresponded to 157 charts, in a 12-month cut-off. For descriptive analysis, frequency and percentage values were used, while the results of the inferential analysis were presented by mean and standard deviation values. Data analysis was performed using SPSS 2.0. The research followed Resolution 466/2012 of the National Health Council. Expected results: Evidence is expected to signal the repercussions of severe preeclampsia on perinatal outcomes.
