The purpose of The Preeclampsia Registry is to collect and store medical and other information from women who have been medically diagnosed with preeclampsia or a related hypertensive (high blood pressure) disorder of pregnancy such as eclampsia or HELLP syndrome, their family members, and women who have not had preeclampsia to serve as controls. Information from participants will be used for medical research to try to understand why preeclampsia occurs, how to predict it better, and to develop experimental clinical trials of new treatments.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Participants who self-report a medical diagnosis of preeclampsia or related hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP), their family members, and women who have never had a diagnosis of preeclampsia (controls) will be invited to participate in this registry. Data will be collected on family members (including children) as reported by the participating individual. Minors who have been affected by preeclampsia, such as teens, will be allowed to participate with consent provided by a parent or guardian as well as assent given by the minor. The registry and informed consent may be completed by an authorized representative on behalf of a woman with a history of preeclampsia if she is physically or mentally disabled or is deceased.
Women who were medically diagnosed with preeclampsia or a related hypertensive disorder of pregnancy (HDP) such as eclampsia or HELLP syndrome.
Female relatives of affected women
Women who have never had preeclampsia or hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, but who would like to serve as "controls" in research studies of preeclampsia.
An authorized representative may complete the questionnaire and provide consent for a woman who had preeclampsia, but has died or is disabled as a result.
