Help Keep Your Pregnant Patients With High BP Safe

About one in 14 Canadian women have hypertension in pregnancy.

If left untreated, this can lead to pregnancy loss, preterm birth, or low birth weight.

Expect most pregnant women with high blood pressure to start on labetalol, nifedipine XL, or methyldopa. These work well to lower BP in mom...and aren't linked to significant effects in the baby.
