In brief: Hypertension

First pregnancies, excessive weight gain, history of chronic kidney disease, chronic hypertension, auto-immune disorders, multiple pregnancies, diabetes are just some of the risk factors for the condition.
If you have any of the above, it is important to be under close supervision of your obstetrician/perinatologist.
