Just as there were no tests to predict or prevent preeclampsia, there are no tests to predict whether preeclampsia will recur in a subsequent pregnancy . Unfortunately, in a small number of women, preeclampsia will recur. This chance seems to increase if preeclampsia was particularly severe or occurred very early in
pregnancy (late second trimester or early third trimester). Although, there are no tests to predict this occurring, you should be monitored more closely during a subsequent pregnancy.

Most women will have good outcomes for their pregnancies complicated by preeclampsia. Some women will continue to have problems with their
blood pressure and will need to be monitored closely after delivery.

Unfortunately, a few women and babies experience life-threatening complications from preeclampsia.
