Dear Ma'am,

Gestational hypertension in pregnancy is a condition, where the blood pressure is above 140/90 mmHg on 2 occasions 4-6 hours apart.

It is a condition of disordered placentation which causes raised blood pressure in Mom and reduced growth as well as reduced liquor in babies. If untreated and unmonitored, they may cause other problems like fits, liver, kidney and brain issues.

There is no natural way recommended safe in pregnancy, do take the advice of your Gynaecologist and followup accordingly. If well controlled the risk of having these issues with progressive gestation would be less and most Gestational Hypertension would resolve spontaneously after delivery.

Do let me know if there are any other queries.
