Hello There, My Girlfriend is 37 Weeks pregnant, everything

Patient : Hello There, My Girlfriend is 37 Weeks pregnant, everything was ok, till she developed High Blood Pressure, She was prescribe Aldomet 500 and Adalat. On a visit to the doctor, we were advised that she get injected with Dexamethasone for maturity of fetus lungs, and prescribed with Saferon Plus, Ascard 75, so that they'd induce her some time next week. After taking adalat and aldomet, her pressure swings anywhere between 123/87 and 142/100 but most times its less than 130/90. Personally, I don't like the idea of inducing labor. Is all this safe. Please note we haven't taken Dexamethosone, we prefer the baby come when he is due, also the ultrasound show that the baby is ok and active, and correctly positioned even the doctors assured that all will ok. Please advice
