BabyChakra

As advised by Babychakra expert Sonali Shivlani ( Prenatal) - Blood pressure causes edema which is swelling and also can result in dizzy spells. She should continue taking her medications so that the pressure does not suddenly spike. A sharp spike can even result in the placenta separating and this could be very dangerous for the fetus. In such a situation the doctor will want to deliver the baby via caesarean as soon as the doctor feels that the baby is ready.
