Bedrest: Preeclampsia is most common in first pregnancies, younger and older mothers, multiple gestations and women whose mother had preeclampsia. Women who already have high blood pressure, diabetes or kidney disease are also at increased risk. Exercise and eat a healthy well balanced diet before and during your pregnancy.

Taking baby aspirin may reduce risk in women with a history of preeclampsia - talk to your doctor about whether this might benefit you. If you have gestational diabetes, controlling blood sugar well lowers preeclampsia risk.
