In brief: Usually not
The pulmonary pressure can increase during pregnancy because of increased volume of blood and sometimes heart failure that complicates pregnancy.
These changes normally improve and resolve shortly after delivery. If a diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension is made it usually refers to a more longstanding issue that needs close monitoring and treatment.
