My blood pressure has spiked to 147/127....

Should I call my midwife? Or wait to see if it goes down first?

  • Please call your midwife, doctor or go to the ER. Those 2 numbers should never be that close. And if they are the same, you're dead. Not to be rude, but you should lay on your left side and get some medical attention...not ask people on the internet what they think.

  • You need to go to the ER now. You or your baby could die if you do nothing.
