Many of us monitor their BP at home, often as per doctors orders. It is recommended to use one with an arm-cuff rather than a wrist-monitor, as these are less accurate. Be sure that the cuff has the appropriate size for you (not too large, nor too small). In terms of brands, I don't have a recommendation, but you might find user feedback online.

Our pain has been put into words, placed into empty cradles, to remember that all our babies lived, that they mattered and always will. - Field of Cradles http://www.fieldofcradles.org/
