ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND: Gestational hypertension is one of the leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality.(1). Pregnancy induced hypertension is defined as systolic blood pressure >140mmhg and diastolic blood pressure >90mmhg. Mild PIH is defined as SBP 140-149mmhg and DBP 90-99mmhg(3) Hypertensive disorders may result in fetal complication, such as growth restriction, oligohydramnios, placental abruption, preterm birth and preinatal death(1 )(1,2) The prevalence of all pregnancies with some form of hypertension can be up to 10%, with the rates of diagnosis varying according to the country and population studied and the criteria used to establish the diagnosis.(3). Gestational hypertension is associated with short and long term issues for mother and child. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of exercise during pregnancy on the risk of gestational hypertensive disorders. CASE REPORT: A 28 years primi pregnant women came with complain loss of established BP control, symptoms/signs such as headache, blurred vision, right upper quadrant or epigastric pain, and diagnosed to have gestational hypertension (SBP 140 mmhg and DBP 90 mmhg) with gestational age of 22weeks. CONCLUSION: Aerobic exercise for about 30- 60 mins two to seven times per week during pregnancy as compared with being more sedentary is associated with a significantly reduced risk of gestational hypertensive disorder, gestational hypertension and cesarean delivery(1).
