Background and activities
In my PhD project I am studying the relationship between pregnancy complications and cardiovascular disease. Women who experience preeclampsia or high blood pressure during their pregnancies have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease. In my thesis I am mapping out the life course trajectories of cardiovascular risk factors in women with history of hypertensive pregnancy complications with the aim of answering the question if these trajectories are different from the ones of women without any pregnancy complications. Answering this question will hopefully both help us understand more about when in the life of these women the increased risk is established and how clinical follow-up and prevention programs for cardiovascular disease in women can be improved.
