Quoting *B & D Mommy*:" And quick question...she said that the magnesium made her blood pressure spike and all that ... ... [snip!] ... spiking? I was wondering because that is what they gave me when I was induced for sever pre-e...which is high blood pressure..."
If you have low magnesium levels you are more prone to high blood pressure issues. Giving magnesium is for lowering blood pressure. I don't find any link between giving her magnesium and raising her blood pressure.
She didn't see a Midwife or OB-GYN during her pregnancy, so there's really no telling if there were underlying issues.
I do have confidence that she was well educated and prepared, but midwives and medial professionals do go through extensive years of schooling for a purpose.
Also, since she has previously stated before that she hates hospitals, being in one when she was so set on having a home UC birth, could be reason enough for high blood pressure.
