Yes: There may be some familial predisposition to this disorder as it seems to apear in clusters of related women. It is also more common with multiple pregnancies (twins/triplets) and recurrence risk is as high as 50% or more in subsequent pregnancies. Resolution of symptoms is usually very prompt after delivery.
