Hypertension: Lifestyle changes such as weight reduction, salt avoidance, no smoking, avoidance of excessive caffeine, very minimal alcohol intake, if any, stress reduction, regular exercise are effective. Certain antihypertensive medications like ACE inhibitors and ARB's are to be avoided during childbearing years.Collaboration between an internist or cardiologist and your gynecologist is recommended.
