Cardiovascular risk after preeclampsia: The effect of communicating risk factors on intended healthy behavior

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Objective: We studied the effect of communicating cardiovascular risk factors on intended healthy behavior in women with a history of preeclampsia or uncomplicated pregnancy. Methods: Intention for healthy behavior was assessed before and after cardiovascular risk assessment. Changes were calculated for women with and without cardiovascular risk factors. Results: In women with cardiovascular risk factors, the intention to quit smoking increased; whereas, intended healthy diet and sufficient exercise did not change. In participants without risk factors, none of the healthy behaviors changed. Conclusion: Communicating risk factors alone does not seem to be effective as an intervention to achieve lifestyle changes.
