Hi there

Where do I start! The questions I have are:

>> How much of an effect do we think stress plays in the development of pre-eclampsia/chance of occurrence if at all?

>> Does sleep deprivation increase the chance of getting PE?

>> Does mild epilepsy increase the chances?

>> Are there any suggested diets to reduce risks/effects if it does occur?

>> If you have PE, No PE pregnancies – whats the chance on number 3 same partner aged 36.

I don't think we have any evidence that stress plays a significant role.

>> Does sleep deprivation increase the chance of getting PE?

No evidence to suggest a role.

>> Does mild epilepsy increase the chances?

It may increase the chance of having a seizure if preeclamptic, but does not increase the risk of preeclamspia.

>> Are there any suggested diets to reduce risks/effects if it does occur?

No impact of diet other than leading to obesity.

>> If you have PE, No PE pregnancies – whats the chance on number 3 same partner aged 36.

I do not clearly understand the question.
