Dec/30/2014

While heartburn is a common discomfort of pregnancy, there are things you can do to help keep the problem at bay.

The American Pregnancy Association suggests:

  • Instead of three big meals a day, eat smaller meals more frequently.
  • After eating, sit upright for about an hour.
  • Steer clear of foods that are spicy, greasy or high in fat.
  • To help ease heartburn, drink a glass of milk or eat a yogurt. Or mix a tablespoon of honey with a glass of warm milk.
