Ah, the joys of motherhood. But with them also come some nasty side effects that moms-to-be have to deal with.
Things like heartburn.
But why do pregnant women suffer from heartburn?
According to studies, acid reflux, heartburn or Gastroesophageal Reflux disease is a direct result of the amount of weight your baby picks up in the womb. As your baby grows, so does your womb. This crowds your stomach and forces acid into the oesophagus.
In addition, progesterone, the hormone that relaxes your muscles during pregnancy, also relaxes your stomach valve. This is the valve that keeps acid out of the oesophagus.
The pain… Burning… Discomfort you call “heartburn”.
Luckily, you don't have to live with it. And you don't have to spend the next nine months dependent on heartburn medications either.
