High-risk pregnancies and heart problems linked

October 24, 2017

Pre-eclampsia can have effects long after pregnancy making affected women up to eight times more likely to suffer heart disease. The American Heart Association now recommends women who have had pre-eclampsia be evaluated for heart disease within a year of giving birth. According to one expert, doctors can see heart attacks and strokes coming often 10 to 20 years ahead of time if they are on the look out, yet OB doctors do not typically warn their patients of the increased risk or advise them to seek evaluation.
