I had BP that was high enough I had to discharge myself (whatever you call it) after DS was born. They wrote me a script for BP meds but all the research I did said there were "inconclusive" results for how the meds passed through breast milk, and I was breast feeding, so I didn't take a single one of those stinking pills. I immediately went on a low-BP diet and started walking a couple miles twice a day. Not only did this drop my blood pressure - within the WEEK - to a healthy level, but it helped some of that baby weight to come off. and then at my pp appointment I had a long conversation with my OB about unnecessary prescriptions. Lol
