We had our first child on 22nd june17 through cesarean delivery of my wife. Throughout the pregnancy period and even before that she never had High BP, not even in OT. But soon after the delivery, her BP shoot up to 180-200. She was kept in ICU for 3 days and Lobet was given. After about 5 days, we came home and the doctor advised to keep checking her BP. At home also her BP is fluctuating and inspite of taking Lobet 200, BP remains like 130/100 or 140/100. In her family, they have history of HIGH BP. Her parents had BP. Now doctor is suggesting that if the BP is not controlled in few days, he will have to suggest regular medicine of BP which she will have to take throughout her life. Her age is 29 Years. Please suggest.

BP which is high after delivery is attributed to stress causes during and after labour, stress is not only physical but emotional and harmonal as well as there are lot of changes which happens in a female body during and after pregnancy, however diet and exercise can be very helpful to keep her BP in check, so relax and make sure she takes the correct diet, doesn't put on weight, keeps her triglycerides and cholesterol in check and have a stress free life style, aparr from regular physical activity, for any further information or assistance you may get back to us.
