Pregnancy can be one of life's most exciting and fulfilling adventures. A healthy mom and healthy baby--that's the goal for every pregnancy. Sometimes this is easy, sometimes it requires intensive efforts by the mother, her physicians, her nurses, other health care givers, family members and newborn child's physicians. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness of Guided Imagery on level of blood pressure among PIH mothers. DESIGN: A quantitative approach using quasi experimental pre-test post-test design with control group.
