[Correspondence] Gestational hypertension and advanced maternal age – Authors’ reply

We appreciate the comment by Anna Dietl and Juliane Farthmann suggesting advanced maternal age as a risk factor for the development of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. However, the risk of developing a hypertensive disorder and the risk of developing adverse outcomes after a hypertensive disorder is diagnosed are two different issues. The latter is relevant for our study, because we studied adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes in women who had already been diagnosed with a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy.
