High blood pressure during second pregnancy

rumki82010-07-05 01:12:26 +0000 #1
I am in second pregnancy. I had high blood pressure about a week ago - it was 160/120. The doctor gave me some medicine and I am now on BP medicine and it has definitely helped me. Now my blood pressure is stable at 130/90. I had high blood pressure in my first pregnancy. Is there anyone who has been through something like this type of problem and how he overcame it?

Hello and welcome to YogaForums. It is sweet to hear from mothers and mothers-to-be on the forum.

Have you had high blood pressure outside of your pregnancies?

Were you able to impact your BP rates with other courses: diet, appropriate exercise, relaxation techniques?

Searching for Blood Pressure here will produce many threads on the subject. I recommend the advice and recommendations given by Mukunda and you can find his posts deeper in the forum.

Kind wishes for you and your family,

please realize that the medication you take, your child is taking as well. Maybe look for some natural herbs or something natural. Best of luck in your search

This sounds like judgment to me. It is also assumptive. It implies that the fetus is impacted by this medication, or any medication, proportional to the impact on mother's system. This is simple not true. It also implies that herbs or something "natural" is automatically safer for mother and fetus and this again is not necessarily true.

I strongly ask that we reconsider our own assumptions that pharmaceuticals are unYogic and not best course for many conditions (especially gestational HBP). This rigid thinking as its own brand of troubles. Also, this poster is under the care of her medical doctor and she has not responded to the request for more information as to if there are other course she has tried. Let's take a deep breath and give her a chance to fill in the blanks for us. And please, let's leave out any future fear-provoking opinions on what she is currently doing to care for herself and her unborn child.
