HIGH bp after childbirth

hi i have been told i have hypertension from my gp who has gave me ramipril 5mg . im not sure whether to take them im 17weeks postpartum . i had high bp in hosp 140/96 my surgeon who was looking after me put it down to white coat syndrome as when i was relaxed it came down . anyway i visted my new nurse for checks every 2 weeks and i told her abt my whitecoat syndrome but she wouldnt listen and never let me calm down she took the reading when i was in a full blown panic attack  now my gp want me to start on these pills which i dont want to take . as i feel my bp was high due to my fear of getting my bp took . so should i go ahead with the tabs i cant afford the side effects with a new baby im 38 years old  and abt 2 stone over weight since having my boy thanks
