Don’t forget to inform your doctor if you’re breastfeeding, so they can choose medicines that are safe for your newborn.
Most women who get immediate treatment for postpartum preeclampsia recover well. Still, follow-up care is crucial because high blood pressure might have damaged the blood vessels and even the heart.
Also, please note that postpartum preeclampsia increases the risk of preeclampsia in succeeding pregnancies.
There’s no one way to prevent postpartum preeclampsia, but you can take measures to detect it early and prevent complications.
First, attend to your prenatal check-ups, so the doctor can check your health status and risks. After giving birth, monitor your blood pressure, watch out for the signs, and don’t skip the post-partum consultations.
Should you observe the signs and symptoms of postpartum preeclampsia, seek medical help right away to receive prompt and appropriate intervention.
