High Blood Pressure in Pregnancy

OB/GYN specialists at Tufts Medical Center in Boston treat high blood pressure in pregnancy. High blood pressure (hypertension) is an increase in the force of blood against the arteries in the body. A blood pressure reading of 140/90 or higher indicates high blood pressure. High blood pressure in pregnancy can cause low birth weight or premature births.
