In brief: Not generally
Preeclampsia is the onset of high blood pressure with protein in the urine, occurring after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
If no elevated BP and possible symptoms as shortness of breath, fatique diziness , may warrant heart examination as this could be signs of cardiac heart failure secondary to myocarditis.

If you're not having cardiac symptoms, then there's no reason for a cardiac work up.

In brief: Either way
In the least -- you need to note this in the history, because it can reoccur with subsequent pregnancies preeclampsia/eclampsia syndrome is a medical condition that warrant a comprehensive medical evaluation and it has familial tendency -- meaning genetic preponderance, can occur in other (female) family members in different generations.
