Study Title: Pre-pregnancy Phenotype and Predisposition to Preeclampsia
Purpose: The goal of this research is to examine the contribution of prepregnancy physiologic phenotype to the development of preeclampsia. In addition, we are looking to understand the influence of pregnancy-specific, physiologic adaptations to the pathophysiologic associations of preeclampsia in a group of women at risk for developing preeclampsia. Currently recruiting women who are planning to become pregnant within the next year.
