Preeclampsia is a serious medical complication of pregnancy, affecting 2 - 8% of all pregnancies (at least 10,000 Australian mothers and babies each year).
Preeclampsia can have serious complications for both mother and baby, and long term these women at increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Dr Amanda Henry presents the latest evidence, including her own research, on the role exercise can play in reducing the risk of preeclampsia and lowering the lifetime risk of cardiovascular disease in women who have had a pregnancy complicated by preeclampsia.
Dr Amanda Henry is an Obstetrician at St George Hospital Sydney, and researcher at the University of New South Wales
