Pre-eclampsia is a major cause of maternal and child morbidity and mortality worldwide, especially in developing countries such as Indonesia. In pregnant women with insufficient iodine can cause hypothyroidism at risk for pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia, and other hypertensive disease.  Seaweed contains essential Iodine for pregnant women and can be an alternative prevention of pre-eclampsia in pregnant women. This study aimed to test the effectiveness of the management and development of seaweed biscuits in the effort of prevention of hypertension in pregnant women in Makassar City. This research used experimental type and used  analytical research design which in this case was developed with pretest – posttest control group design. Samples were chosen based on purposive sampling method with the study population were all pregnant women in Makassar City, especially in Tamalanrea sub district and obtained 14 samples. The results showed that the effectiveness of management and provision of BISRULA in pregnant women has not been too significant to lower blood pressure in pregnant women, this is evidenced by viewing the presentation of changes in the condition of the study samples that showed a meaningless value in which all the test against the variable yields p> 0 , 05 This is due mainly to the samples were  used very little because of the difficulty of finding the appropriate sample criteria and also because of the shortness of the research time so it is difficult to prove the effectiveness of BISRULA as well as the measuring instruments  had not used a more detailed measurement standard to see any changes occurring in samples so that these can be suggestions for conducting further research related to this study.
