MNPQC's Hypertension in Pregnancy & the Postparum Period Initiative was created to improve the identification, treatment, and follow up of hypertension in pregnancy and the postpartum period. The workgroup has created several tools for your use and dissemination: 

Providers/Nurses: The toolkit above, the MNPQC Hypertension in Pregnancy Therapy Care Process Model, was created to help you better diagnose, treat, and educate your patients on hypertension in pregnancy and the postpartum period. Please share these materials, bookmark the page, and check back for the most up-to-date information.

Providers/Nurses/Department Managers & Educators: The information in the above ER & Outpatient Treatment of Hypertension in Pregnancy Poster outlines treatment of pregnant and postpartum women presenting to the Emergency Room/Department, Urgent Care, or clinic setting with hypertension. The information is taken from pages 19-20 of the full MNPQC Hypertension in Pregnacy Therapy Care Process Model posted below.  Feel free to download & print this poster for use in your facility. For additional details and treatment information on treating hypertension in pregnancy and the postpartum period, please review the full toolkit.

As COVID-19 started its spread in Minnesota, nurse-midwife leaders from across the state started meeting weekly over Zoom to discuss how care was changing. With the COVID-19 pandemic limiting clinical visits, expecting patients experienced even less time with their providers during wellness checks and their partners weren’t allowed to attend with them. In addition, in-person prenatal classes were suspended. Learn More
