Hypertension in Pregnancy: The Management of Hypertensive Disorders During Pregnancy

Hypertension in Pregnancy: The Management of Hypertensive Disorders During Pregnancy

NICE Clinical Guidelines - National Collaborating Centre for Women's and Children's Health (UK)

Version: August 2010

Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is the feeding method of choice and encouraging breastfeeding is a key priority for maternity care providers (whether working in hospital or in primary care; see ‘Postnatal care’, NICE clinical guideline 37). While hypertension is not in itself a contraindication to breastfeeding, the compatibility of antihypertensive drugs with breastfeeding may be an issue for discussion between women with hypertensive disorders and their healthcare providers. In this section, the GDG sought to identify evidence in relation to the safety of antihypertensive agents during breastfeeding.

Management of pregnancy with chronic hypertension

Women with chronic hypertension are at increased risk of pre-eclampsia but even in the absence of this there is increased perinatal mortality. The women frequently have co-morbidities and require care above that offered routinely.
