Your wife has a complication of pregnancy called preeclampsia/PIH.Its characterised by high BP and protenuria.There are other more severe manifestations also.If its a term pregnancy then its perfectly fine to induce labour.Esp if her BP isnt controlled.Both types of delivery can be done depending on various factors to be assessed by her doctor.
