In the September issue of Vogue, Beyoncé revealed she had toxemia when pregnant with her twins, Rumi and Sir, in 2017. 
The singer said the condition caused her to go on bed rest and have an emergency C-section. 
Toxemia is another name for the medical condition preeclampsia, a condition defined by high blood pressure and protein in the urine, according to the Preeclampsia Foundation. 
According to the foundation, the condition affects between five and eight percent of pregnancies.

For the September issue of Vogue, Beyoncé wrote an essay detailing her pregnancy with twins Sir and Rumi. 

In the essay, the mom of three wrote she was “swollen from toxemia and had been on bed rest for over a month” during the time. Ultimately, the condition caused her to have an emergency C-section to deliver the twins. Following the birth, she and the twins spent weeks in the NICU.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
