A 43-year-old member asked:
If i had eclampsia last time does that mean i'll probably have a high risk pregnancy for pre-eclampsia this time?

Eclampsia: Eclampsia may recur as pre-eclampsia in another pregnancy. Usually recurrence rates are estimated as about 15%. If you have high blood pressure outside of pregnancy recurrence risks may be higher-about 30%.
