Women who have high blood pressure ideally should seek medical care prior to becoming pregnant, says John Folk, MD, a clinical associate professor in Upstate's department of obstetrics and gynecology. He explains that high blood pressure, known as hypertension, can pose risks during pregnancy. He also explains why it's reasonable to expect that a woman can deliver a healthy baby if her high blood pressure is carefully monitored and controlled during pregnancy.
