Hello Santi,


Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


The situation that you are experiencing is called postpartum preeclampsia. This can occur within 48 hours after giving birth or up to 6 weeks postpartum.


Symptoms of this condition include:

TD goes up to 140/90 or more
Frequent headaches
Get tired quickly
Blurred vision
Swollen feet, and so on

Some things become risk factors for postpartum preeclampsia such as age, heredity, obesity, history of hypertension before pregnancy and so on. This situation should be immediately consulted by a doctor so that unwanted complications occur such as seizures. In this condition, antihypertensive administration is a treatment option.


In addition to administering drugs several things are done to overcome this problem:

Routinely check your blood pressure to the doctor
Eat healthy and nutritious foods, limit salt intake
Regular exercise
Maintain body shape to avoid obesity
Take medicine regularly
Avoid excessive stress

So, hopefully useful.


Keep your health in the midst of the current COVID-19 outbreak by living clean and healthy, staying at home, and avoid traveling outside the house if it's not urgent.
