Re: high blood pressure after pregnancy

How do they know she has high blood pressure? If it's only been high once, it's possible that she was just stressed or upset when they took her blood pressure. Blood pressure readings can very greatly within just a few minutes. Also, if you BF and drink caffeine, that could cause her blood pressure to be high.

Re: high blood pressure after pregnancy

I agree with the previous post. There could be many reasons for high blood pressure (psychological, physiological, other illnesses). To prove one, it should be monitored for days/ taken 3-4 times a day and to seek the reason for it and respectively the treatment.
I had high blood pressure after my first child. In my case it was due to the weight I put on during the pregnancy and the breastfeeding. After I have started to lose weight, the high blood pressure went down.
