Pre-eclampsia: Pre-eclampsia can occur in women who have a history of hypertension when not pregnant, and in fact, it is more likely in those women than in those who are normotensive when not pregnant. It is important for both mother and fetus to have regular visits with a trained OB provider during the entire pregnancy.
