thank you for your query.
If your wife is having gestational hypertension ( persistently elevated blood pressure even on medication ), then delivery is definitely recommended at 37 weeks.
It depends on various blood tests done to assess severity of the hypertension.
Go alongwith your obstetrician's advice, as gestational hypertension, if uncontrolled, is dangerous for both the mother and the baby.
Take care.
