Very high blood pressure during pregnancy is an emergency that needs treatment right away.
This condition may also result in a baby's death before birth (stillbirth).
It is very important to go to all of your doctor visits. Your doctor will check your blood pressure and make sure that your pregnancy is progressing as it should. Treatment should start early if a problem is found.
