About 1 in 10 women will develop preeclampsia during their pregnancy. Women who develop preeclampsia are at an increased risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and kidney problems later on in life. This longitudinal follow-up of the PMC Study (Preeclampsia Mechanisms and Consequences) aims to identify the group of women who are at the highest risk for complications later in life. Researchers will compare the current heart functioning and cardiovascular health of women who had preeclampsia during their PMC pregnancy to those who did not.
