Abstract

The relation between pregnancy-induced hypertension and reproductive history was assessed in 29,484 women receiving obstetric care at Parkland Memorial Hospital. The incidence of pregnancy-induced hypertension was 25.4% in primigravid women, somewhat lower (22.3%) in women whose only previous pregnancy terminated in abortion, and much lower (10%) in women who carried two or more successive pregnancies to viability.
