What you'll learn

Hypertension is the most commonly encountered medical problem during pregnancy, complicating 2-3% of pregnancies either during early stages, partum, or post-partum. Chronic hypertension is a long-term blood pressure that is elevated and precedes pregnancy, is diagnosed within the 1st 20 weeks of pregnancy, or does not resolve by the 12-week post-partum checkup. Hypertension can always be dangerous for both the mother and the fetus though it does not cause severe problems for some women. Women with chronic or pre-existing hypertension are more likely to have certain complications during pregnancy than those with normal blood pressure. In critical cases, the mother develops preeclampsia-or “toxemia of pregnancy,” leading to adverse effects in the newborn.
