Associations between antenatal systolic blood pressure at baseline and cardiovascular risk score (Framingham Risk Score) at 5-year follow-up

Baseline SBP at 26–28 weeks gestation, each 10 mm Hg ↑5-year FRS, scores
β (95% CI)
P value
Model 10.6 (0.07 to 1.2)0.03
Model 20.7 (0.2 to 1.1)<0.01
Model 30.7 (0.04 to 1.4)0.04
  • Model 1: unadjusted.

  • Model 2: adjusted for age, ethnicity and college degree.

  • Model 3: model 2 and additionally adjusted for gestational diabetes mellitus diagnosis and prepregnancy body mass index at baseline (26–28 weeks gestation).

  • RS, Framingham Risk Score; SBP, systolic blood pressure.
