Effects of Lactation on Postpartum Blood Pressure Among Women with Gestational Hypertension and Pre-eclampsia
American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, 2016

Future studies are needed to explore association of lactation and blood pressure in later life for women with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.
