Abstract

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a technique of self-empowerment and alignment of the body's energy system to overcome physical and psychological problems, in which pregnancy changes both physically and psychologically. This literature study aims to examine articles related to Emotional Freedom Technique for Preventing Preeclampsia. This study used a literature study approach using several sources selected based on predetermined criteria, by the researcher. The EFT and SEFT methods are effective in reducing cortisol levels, where the role of cortisol is very influential in reducing blood pressure, blood circulation, and heart rate. Stress as a trigger response to increase cortisol in the body, this also occurs in the blood pressure of preeclamptic mothers. EFT and SEFT have an effect on decreasing cortisol levels so that blood pressure decreases which occurs in mothers with preeclampsia.
