On a global scale, 5%–10% of pregnancies are complicated by hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP), which can lead to serious maternal, fetal, and neonatal complications. Many of these women have pre-existing hypertension (<20 weeks of pregnancy) or hypertension postpartum that persists for more than 3 months. It has also been shown that women with a self-managed postpartum HDP are at high risk of developing chronic hypertension and cardiovascular complications later.
