It is not unusual for patients with blood pressure problems in pregnancy to have some residual problems after delivery. Often patients with preeclampsia tend to be on BP medications for several weeks, and a small percentage of those will be on medications for longer than that. Overall a cardiologist should be able to control her blood pressure nicely. Migraine headaches con be related to the blood pressure problems as they both have a similar physiology. In fact, some blood pressure medications used in pregnancy may help migraines as well. As for the thyroid problems in the family, they may also be related. In the absence of any diagnosed problems in the patient it probably is not a factor however.
