Causes of low Blood pressure during pregnancy

Published by B+ve

During pregnancy the flow of blood increases in the body for proper supply of oxygen and food nutrients to reach the foetus, as a result the body’s blood pressure decreases. This becomes a major cause of low blood pressure or hypotension in a majority of pregnant women.

Here are a few steps to ease the symptoms of low blood pressure:

  • Lie on your left side as it increases the flow of blood to your heart.
  • Avoid sudden movements, particularly when standing up from a seated position.
  • Consume several small meals during the day instead of large meals.
  • Exercise regularly. 
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
