Abstract
High blood pressure in pregnancy (also called gestational hypertension) is a blood pressure (BP) that stays higher than 140/90 (140 over 90). For most people, a normal blood pressure is 140/90 or less. After week 20 of your pregnancy, high blood pressure can be linked to pre-eclampsia. This is a more serious condition that includes high blood pressure and protein in the urine (pee). Because pre-eclampsia can be dangerous to you and your baby, we ask you to monitor your blood pressure and symptoms. This pamphlet explains the symptoms to watch for if you have high blood pressure, how to check your blood pressure at home, and symptoms that require medical attention right away. Contact information for the OBS Clinic and OBS Unit, and sheets to keep track of your blood pressure are included.
