My paternal grandmother had "toxemia" with my dad- maybe HELLP too since she was extremely jaundiced and had more than one blood transfusion.
Neither my mother or my sisters experienced PE. However my mother-in-law had toxemia with both her pregnancies. My husband's sister had preeclampsia only with her second child (with a different partner- one who had lost a sister due to preeclampsia).
