In brief: Many risks-"toxemia"
A woman has a higher chance of developing preeclampsia if she has a history of it or hypertension, is diabetic, has certain kidney or autoimmune disease, has >1 fetus, is at an age extreme (young or midlife), etc.
If she does develop preeclampsia, complications include the condition progressing to eclampsia (convulsions) or to strokes, kidney damage, bleeding, etc.
