Hi,
How are you and how was your delivery? Gestational hypertension  occurs if  high blood pressure develops after 20 weeks of pregnancy. This could lead to a serious condition preeclampsia and chronic hypertension.  Medications are often prescribed to control this. After you give birth, your blood pressure is closely monitored and  usually  returns to a normal level within a few weeks.If it is still high three months after you give birth, you'll be diagnosed with chronic hypertension. It is important that you monitor your blood pressure even during this time. Take care and do keep us posted.
