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.

Summary of recommendations and care pathway

This clinical guideline contains recommendations for the diagnosis and management of hypertensive disorders during pregnancy in the antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal periods. It includes recommendations for women with chronic hypertension who wish to conceive and recommendations for advice to women after a pregnancy complicated by hypertension.
