If you've had high blood pressure – including gestational hypertension or preeclampsia – gestational diabetes, or delivered a baby earlier than 37 weeks, listen up.

Although these conditions often disappear after having a baby, simply experiencing them puts you at much greater risk of heart disease or stroke in the next 10 years. Here are steps you can take:

  • Make sure your health and heart are protected.
  • Let your health care providers know if you developed any of these conditions during pregnancy, and encourage other women to do so, too.
  • Learn about your risk of heart disease and stroke now and in the future.
