Pregnancy and High Blood Pressure

It’s important to watch for signs of high blood pressure all throughout a woman’s life, but during pregnancy it’s crucial. Blood pressure is the force inside your blood vessels when your heart beats. If your blood pressure is high most of the time, you have high blood pressure or hypertension. That can lead to stroke or heart problems. High blood pressure is a silent killer since it’s possible to have symptoms or no symptoms at all. During pregnancy, high blood pressure can affect the unborn baby. It’s also associated with serious issues at the time of pregnancy called preeclampsia.
