[Correspondence] Gestational hypertension and advanced maternal age

Kim Broekhuijsen and colleagues (June 20, p 2492)1 found that expectant management of women with gestational hypertension could reduce the risk of respiratory distress syndrome in neonates. Although the study has considerable merits and will probably promote much-needed discussion, we feel obliged to add one important aspect—namely, the effect of maternal age on the development of hypertensive disorders.2 The trend towards delayed childbearing is a well described phenomenon in high-income countries.
