Treatment Options for Heartburn during Pregnancy

Heartburn is known as probably the most prevalent ailments women encounter throughout their pregnancy. This problem is characterized by the burning feeling in the mouth, chest and throat, as well as the sour or bitter taste. Heartburn during pregnancy is caused by the hormonal changes that take place in the body over the course of pregnancy. There are specific kinds of hormones within the woman’s body that may cause the valve or the LES to soften, hence allowing gastric acid to regurgitate back to the esophagus from the stomach. The growing child in the womb could add more pressure on the stomach, push the abdomen upward and push the contents of the abdomen to the esophageal tract. However, be aware that this disorder can easily be controlled with the right cures.

Heartburn Remedies when Pregnant

Various remedies are available that will help deal with the disorder in pregnant women. However, it is recommended that women who are pregnant go for treatment options that are regarded as risk-free not just for her but also for the fetus as well. Natural remedies, prescription and non-prescription drugs can all be implemented for the condition. These can also be combined with lifestyle and dietary adjustments for more benefits.


Antacids are known to be very effective against heartburn, as it could reduce the effects of stomach acids. For pregnant women, chewing antacids that contains magnesium and calcium can be very beneficial. The tablet may come with magnesium hydroxide, calcium carbonate or magnesium oxide. Nonetheless, antacids that contains aluminum hydroxide or aluminum carbonate needs to be avoided, as aluminum could lead to bowel irregularity and other harmful side effects.

Antacids containing sodium bicarbonate and sodium nitrate should be avoided, since these can increase sodium level within the body and result in the soreness of fingers and ankles, along with bloating. Acid reducers also provides relief to women suffering from heartburn while pregnant. However, remember that it is always better to speak to a physician before choosing any medications.

Lifestyle and Dietary Modifications

If you want to know how to relieve heartburn, then you ought to understand that it can also be taken care of by doing some lifestyle and dietary alterations. In terms of going on a diet, heartburn can be handled by avoiding the foods that may trigger the disorder. Some of these foods include chocolates, tomatoes, garlic, citrus fruits, spicy and fatty foods, vinegar, fried foods and mint products. Avoiding coffee and tea should be done. As an alternative to having 3 large meals in a day, it would also be better to have 5 to 6 smaller ones.

Putting on loose garments when sleeping and keeping the head raised is also crucial. Cigarette smoking while pregnant also need to be avoided. Yogurt is also an efficient natural cure against heartburn over the course of pregnancy. Honey is also effective for the disorder. You need to simply combine it with warm milk or lukewarm water before consuming it to cure the indicators of heartburn. Many individuals believe that all these are efficient against the illness and are risk-free for women that are pregnant.

This means you do not need to rely on drugs in an effort to handle heartburn disorders. In case you still want to opt for drugs, ensure that you speak with your health care provider before doing this, and make certain to adhere to your physician’s instructions regarding its intake. Both natural home remedies and non-prescription medicines can be used for the disease. The only main difference is that the former do not come with any side effects and is considered less dangerous for the unborn child.

Chronic heartburn during pregnancy should be given quick medical help, as it can cause various complications. It is essential to learn what causes heartburn so that you can address the problem properly and opt for the right remedy for it.
