    • We determined whether a recorded history of gestational hypertension or pre-eclampsia or eclampsia predicted cardiovascular disease in later life, as indicated by measures of mortality and morbidity.
    • In rare instances, it can progress to a life-threatening condition called eclampsia.
    • Long term survival of mothers was addressed in 1976 by Chesley et al, who found no increased mortality in white women who had eclampsia in their first pregnancy.
    • For example, it may be hypothesized that recurrence of eclampsia in pregnant women is more common in those that have family history of hypertension.
