Our expert says:
I am so sorry to hear that you are suffering from hypertension during your pregnancy and that you have had pre-eclampsia in the past. Please for your own sake and the baby go and see a dietitian ASAP. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will work out a low-salt, high-calcium diet for you to help you keep the high bp under control, while still ensuring that you and baby get all the other nutrients you need.
Go for that consultation immediately.
Wishing you all the very best for your pregnancy
