Frequently Asked Questions1. Which doctor should I consult for the problem of hypertension during pregnancy?
You can consult an obstetrician.
2. Does high blood pressure mean I have pre-eclampsia?
Not necessarily. In addition to high blood pressure, pre-eclampsia often has two more related problems, protein in the urine and excessive swelling of the body, especially the lower limbs. Many women with high blood pressure during pregnancy do not have protein in their urine or extreme swelling, and do not get pre-eclampsia.
3. Does swelling mean I have pre-eclampsia?
Swelling alone does not necessarily mean you have pre-eclampsia. Some swelling is normal during pregnancy. Swelling is considered serious if it does not go away after resting.
4. Can pre-eclampsia be prevented?
Although there are currently no known preventive methods, it is important for all pregnant women to obtain early and ongoing antenatal care. This allows early recognition and treatment of conditions such as pre-eclampsia.
