In this issue, Stuart and colleagues, using data from the Nurses' Health Study II, report associations between a history of a first pregnancy complicated by a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy and physician-diagnosed hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and type 2 diabetes over the course of 3 decades after pregnancy.
