Pressure after childbirth: what to do?
After giving birth, a woman has an increase or decrease in blood pressure, which has negative consequences. If the pressure in a newly mummy is high, then the doctor makes a diagnosis of hypertension. If the tonometer shows a reduced pressure, then the hypotension in a woman is diagnosed. Consider the main causes of these negative consequences that occur in women in the postpartum period.
High blood pressure presents a danger not only after childbirth, but also during pregnancy. During the entire period of bearing the child the doctor must control the pressure of the expectant mother. A slight increase in pressure during pregnancy and after childbirth is permissible, in addition, this phenomenon is considered normal, since the woman experienced an important moment in her life. But when the mark on the tonometer exceeds the palpitation value of 150/95 mm Hg, immediate treatment should be resorted to.
High blood pressure has an adverse effect on the baby, both during pregnancy and after childbirth. What is dangerous high pressure in a mother for an infant? In order to answer this question, it should be recalled that after birth, the baby feeds on the breast milk of his mother and, accordingly, has a close contact. In the production of milk, mammary glands are involved, which are supplied with blood. With arterial hypertension, there is a limited blood supply to the body, which directly affects the lactation process. In this case, the child does not receive nutrients, which affects its growth. Therefore, you should immediately inform the doctor about the problems of hypertension and take appropriate measures of recovery.
