Pre Eclampsia second time around?

Patient : I had my daughter 6 years ago she was born 7 weeks early as I had pre eclampsia it did not develop until I was 6 months pregnant and after she was born my blood pressure etc was fine again. I am now wanting to have a baby with a differnet partner and worried about the risk of getting this again? I am not overweight am 30 years old, dont smoke, eat a balanced diet and am active. I cant take the pill or contraceptives due to it making me have high blood pressure. So I worry this could be why I had pre eclampsia before?
