Monitoring blood pressure during pregnancy

Every time you visit your gynecologist or midwife, you'll have to take your blood pressure.

During pregnancy, your blood pressure is on a roller coaster ride: low during the first trimester, it tends to rise at the end of the pregnancy.

  • Your doctor will keep a close eye on your high blood pressure, and if it reaches 140/90, they will advise you to be vigilant.
  • If you already had high blood pressure or diabetes before your pregnancy, talk to your doctor about it. Don't forget that the best remedy is rest and no stress!

Don't hesitate to be pampered, it's the best way to release tension.
