I am 16 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. I have had both naturally, although I had severe back labour. My concern is this. I seem to have low blood pressure 109/53 pulse 65. I am 32.
I also have a low red blood cell count and have started taking a prenatal supplement. Is there a need for concern with this low blood pressure? I wish to have an epidural this time due to the back labour. Will an epidural cause any problems with the low blood pressure? Will the
baby be okay with this low blood pressure? Is there anything I can do to fix it?
