Due to limited provider staffing, we cannot perform blood pressure checks associated with pregnancy, unless it is associated with a routine OB visit. This is necessary because we do not have a full-time OB provider to evaluate the blood pressure on a daily basis and determine any necessary course of action based on the blood pressure results.
