Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a technique of self-empowerment and alignment of the body’s energy system to overcome physical and psychological problems. Pregnancy involves both physical and psychological changes. 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; cortisol is influential in blood pressure, blood circulation, and heart rate. Stress is 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.
