Re : link between previa and PE?

The circumstances which lead to the development of preeclampsia and placenta previa appear to be different, such that concurrence would be more likely a consequence of two problems causing two conditions rather than one problem causing both conditions. Theoretically placenta previa could exacerbate an already compromised placenta, but preeclampsia would not be expected to lead to placenta previa.

link between previa and PE?

I had a c-section at 33 weeks gestation as a result of pre- eclampsia. I had already been in hospital for a few weeks as I was suffering from bleeds due to a very low-lying placenta (type 4 placenta praevia). Could this have caused or contributed to the onset of pre-eclampsia?

Thanks
