BuMP Study: Self-monitoring of blood pressure during pregnancy

Self-monitoring of blood pressure in pregnancy: developing the evidence base in primary care.

This study aims to determine whether a programme to support women monitoring their own blood pressure through pregnancy is practical to implement, and acceptable. The study results will help us to develop schedules for self-monitoring and thresholds for the diagnosis of raised blood pressure in pregnancy based on the home readings.
