FULL TITLE

The BUMP Trial - Blood pressure monitoring in pregnancy

OVERVIEW

 Blood Pressure Monitoring in high risk pregnancy to improve the detection and monitoring of hypertension

WHO CAN participate in THIS STUDY? 

Pregnant women at risk of high blood pressure and pregnant women with high blood pressure

ABOUT THE STUDY 

The BUMP trial is testing whether monitoring blood pressure at home during pregnancy can help the early detection of hypertension and pre-eclampsia.

Around one in ten women will have high blood pressure in pregnancy. For some women this may be a sign of pre-eclampsia, which is usually detected in routine appointments through blood pressure and urine checks. We would like to find out if home blood pressure monitoring might help early identification of hypertension and pre-eclampsia.

We are working with NHS sites in London, Thames Valley and the West Midlands to recruit over 2,000 pregnant women into this trial.

Half the women taking part will be asked to monitor their blood pressure (the self-monitoring group). All participants will continue to receive routine NHS care during their pregnancy and be asked to complete a few short questionnaires. The group each participant is in will be decided by chance.
