May is Stroke Month

May is Stroke Month

May 07, 2020

Moms, sisters, aunties, grandmothers…our mother figures are often under one roof. They’re champion worriers and champion conquerors of the to-do list. We’ve never met a woman who didn’t wake up with her mind set on crossing off something from the list, and who didn’t fall asleep worried she could’ve done one more thing (usually for someone else). Even more so thanks to pod – centric pandemic life.

But what if one thing could cancel out a worry? What if keeping your blood pressure in check today could mean that you didn’t have to worry about stroke tomorrow… and your family didn’t have to worry about a stroke happening to you?

Women have unique risks for high blood pressure, a leading cause of stroke. Black and Latina women face even greater risk of developing high blood pressure, having a stroke and having complications during or immediately after pregnancy
