  1. Hello,
    Thanks for the query,
    high bp especially during gestation is called gestational hypertension and can happen only during pregnancy. This is genetically related and cannot be predicted or prevented beforehand or neither prophylactic medications are advised. But a previous case of preeclampsia have 20 % increased chances of getting high bp in next pregnancy so you just need to be followed up regularly and once detected with high bp should be started of antihypertensives accordingly and on time.
