Clinical Trial Summary

This study will compare two arms in a randomized clinical trial of cardiovascular risk prevention in women with a history of preeclampsia. The first arm will provide postpartum patients and their clinicians with the American Heart Association's (AHA) Class I Lifestyle Recommendations for women with a history of preeclampsia. The second arm will additionally receive access to a customized patient-informed online program with modules on how to achieve the AHA recommendations for diet, activity and weight management.

Clinical Trial Description

The study team will work with patients via focus groups to develop a novel internet-based program to provide information and tools for cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk reduction for women who are at increased risk of CVD by virtue of their history of preeclampsia, a common complication of pregnancy. The American Heart Association has recently issued guidelines that physicians should include history of the hypertensive pregnancy disorder, preeclampsia, as a risk factor for CVD. Indeed, research demonstrates that roughly 2 out of 3 women with a history of preeclampsia will die from CVD. This study will work with patients with prior preeclampsia and with the Preeclampsia Foundation, a patient- based organization, to create an online lifestyle modification program ( accessible by computer or smart phone) for women with recent preeclampsia to reduce CVD risk. The study is a randomized controlled trial to test the program's acceptability, use, and impact on diet, postpartum weight retention, physical activity, blood pressure, and patient knowledge and self-efficacy to improve health. ;
