Dear Momy to be
There are safe medications one can take if your blood pressure falls too low and causes fainting or neurological symptoms - discuss with your GP as you will need a prescription. It is not dangerous in itself but you could fall and hurt yourself or the baby and it is dangerous when you drive

I was told by my GP that i' ve got low blood pressure. I' m 8 months pregnant and my gynae told me there is no such thing called low blood pressure. I will be going through a caesarian section so i' m very much worried about my health
