Brief description The major problems in late pregnancy are preeclampsia, gestational diabetes and babies who are small or are born prematurely. Women who develop these pregnancy complications and men who father them are at risk of later life coronary heart disease (CHD). The purpose of this study is to develop tests to identify couples at risk of CHD early in pregnancy. If we can predict this risk early, targeted interventions can be implemented to reduce the risk of pregnancy complications and subsequent CHD.
