Medical News / Directly from AHA 2023: Controlling Blood Pressure After Pregnancy Leads to Cardiovascular Benefits

The earlier a woman gets her blood pressure controlled after giving birth, the quicker the blood pressure will return to normal levels and the healthier the heart will be, a new study found. The study—presented November 11, 2023, at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2023 (AHA) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as a late breaker—examined postpartum women who had high blood pressure during their pregnancy. The study found the women had long-term blood pressure and cardiovascular benefits if their blood pressure was controlled for the first few weeks after delivery. Source: MDMag.
