The answer of Dr. Yéhouda Benchimol, gynecologist-obstetrician in Paris.

  • High blood pressure is not a contraindication to a full-term pregnancy. But the risks will, of course, be increased if you have severe hypertension requiring multiple treatments, which is unbalanced or associated with complications. In this case, it is necessary to think carefully before considering a pregnancy.
  • Otherwise, there are treatments compatible with a maternity. The growth of the future baby should be monitored more closely by regular ultrasounds, Dopplers of the mother's fetus and uterine artery vessels, and urine albumin and liver functions.
  • All these parameters make it possible to evaluate the risk of complications such as stunting (low birth weight), preeclampsia (arterial hypertension associated with the presence of albumin) or a retro-placental hematoma, which is a mass of blood due to placental detachment.
