Answer: High bp will not affect your baby if you follow some natural tips. Limit or eliminate fried foods. Continuous consumption of fried foods or foods highly concentrated in oil can cause oil to build up in your arteries.  Monitor your salt intake. The daily limit for consumption of salt is 2,400 mg; however, limiting your intake to 1,500 mg only. Maintain a healthy weight and increase physical activity whenever possible.  Increase your potassium by taking dietary supplements or eating foods rich in potassium. Foods rich in potassium include bananas, orange juice, avocados, cantaloupe, tomatoes and chicken. Do breathing exercises or yoga to lower your stress levels and help to stabilize your blood pressure.
