Hypertension in pregnancy: diagnosis and management - National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)

This guideline covers diagnosing and managing hypertension (high blood pressure), including pre-eclampsia, during pregnancy, labour and birth. It also includes advice for women with hypertension who wish to conceive and women who have had a pregnancy complicated by hypertension. It aims to improve care during pregnancy, labour and birth for women and their babies.

In April 2023, we updated our recommendations on when to offer placental growth factor (PLGF)-based testing for pre-eclampsia, in line with our diagnostics guidance on PLGF-based testing for pre-eclampsia. See the update information for more details.
