Samantha was pregnant with her first child. Early visits to her midwife revealed high blood pressure, and she was invited to join the BuMP study. She took her blood pressure throughout her pregnancy, and was hospitalized four times during her pregnancy because of her blood pressure. Doctors decided to induce her three weeks early, as her blood pressure was rising.
