Both times I was off medication around 3 weeks postpartum. Many women, however, are much longer on BP medication (3-6 months). And some never return to normal pressures.
It is important to be in touch with your GP or internist, so your meds can be adjusted if needed. Watch out for postpartum PE for up to 6 weeks postpartum.
