Heartburn During Pregnancy
More than half of all pregnant women report symptoms of severe heartburn, especially during their second and third trimesters. Changing hormone levels and increased abdominal pressures during pregnancy increase the risk of acid reflux and heartburn. Mild symptoms should be treated with lifestyle changes, including eating several small meals a day instead of three large ones, avoiding fried and spicy foods, and not lying down after eating. However, if diet and lifestyle don't alleviate symptoms, pregnant women should consult their doctor before taking any medications.
