A unique identification number allocated to all residents of Denmark at birth was used for individual linkage to the National Patient Registry. This registry contains information on incident disease diagnoses on all inpatient hospital contacts since 1977, and since 1995, also outpatient and emergency room contacts [23]. We identified incident hospital diagnoses of hypertension (International Classification of Diseases [ICD]-10: I10 and I11), ischemic heart disease (ICD-10: I20, I21, I24, and I25), and stroke (ICD-10: I60 to I64) after 18 months postpartum. Furthermore, we included information on self-reported hypertension from the maternal follow-up. The women reported any hypertension diagnosed by a doctor and the year of the diagnosis. An arbitrary date was set to January 1, as the exact date of diagnosis was unknown. Risk of self-reported hypertension was studied in a subsample of 25,926 women who had no self-reported hypertension before start of follow-up.
