Attention all expecting mothers! May is High Blood Pressure Awareness Month and it's important to know how this can affect your pregnancy and birth. High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is a common health condition that can cause complications during pregnancy, such as preeclampsia, preterm birth, and low birth weight.
As Indigenous Midwives, we want to ensure that all mothers have access to the necessary resources and support to manage their blood pressure during pregnancy. This includes monitoring blood pressure regularly, making lifestyle changes such as eating a healthy diet and staying active, and seeking medical attention if blood pressure levels become concerning.
We encourage all expecting mothers to prioritize their health and seek the guidance of a healthcare provider if they have any concerns about their blood pressure. Let's work together to ensure healthy outcomes for both mother and baby. #HighBloodPressureAwarenessMonth #IndigenousMidwives #PregnancyAndBirth #HealthAndWellness
