Our expert says:
Some people only develop high blood pressure in pregnancy but if you have a family history (mother or father with high blood pressure)you may have a hereditary risk to develop high blood pressure. I usually ask my patients to do their blood pressure for a week every day to see what the average for a week is before I start them on blood pressure medication - to exclude a single high reading.
