Dr. Nikolaos Zacharias answered

Specializes in Maternal-Fetal Medicine

Multifactorial.: Family history of preeclampsia (also known as toxemia of pregnancy) does increase the likelihood of preeclampsia in any given pregnancy, however it is not the most significant risk factor. Short sexual cohabitation, young or advanced maternal age (<20, >35) and first pregnancy (or previous affected pregnancy) are all much more potent risk factors.
