Pre-eclampsia maybe


There is a disease of pregnancy called pre-eclampsia or toxemia. It is described as occurring after 20 weeks of pregnancy and it often involves elevated blood pressure (BP) & protein in the urine. This is the most worrisome condition which would be considered as a reason for elevated BP. However elevated BP may be related to other causes also, however it most certainly requires medical assessment.

Not in normal cases.


It is not normal for a woman to develop high blood pressure in pregnancy. In many women blood pressure during the second trimester of a pregnancy. However, in some women particularly those with risk factors ( young and old patients, first pregnancies, obesity etc.) high blood pressure can develop. Pre eclampsia develops when liver, kidney and other organs are affected. This can be mild or severe.
