You & your body
If you’re experiencing the pain of heartburn during pregnancy, you’re not alone. It’s more than just indigestion – it’s a powerful burning sensation that seems to be in the middle of the chest. Caused by the release of stomach acid, it’s often brought on by lying flat – not altogether helpful when you’re trying to get some rest!
There are many tried and tested methods of relieving heartburn during pregnancy, so you could try a few of these:
• Eat your evening meal early, and don’t eat anything in the couple of hours before you go to bed
• Take a glass of milk to bed with you
• Sleep upright or propped-up – use a couple of pillows to support your back and neck
• Get plenty of medical advice – and don’t take any indigestion remedies before checking with your doctor first
