Abstract

Guidelines encourage the use of self-monitoring of blood pressure in pregnancy, and research suggests that women prefer it. But the blood pressure monitoring in pregnancy group (BUMP) explain that our enthusiasm may run ahead of the evidence. They outline what is known and call for better understanding before self-monitoring is implemented.
