Natural treatments for concerns experienced during pregnancy:
This is a common problem during pregnancy, especially during the first and third trimester.
Causes: As the baby increases in size, it puts pressure on digestive organs. Food also passes through the intestines more slowly due to an increase in progesterone, which relaxes smooth muscles throughout the body, including the digestive tract.
Many women can experience heartburn during pregnancy even if they have never experienced it before.
Causes: Increased levels of hormones can soften the ligaments that normally keep the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) between your stomach and esophagus tightly closed. Also, the growing baby puts pressure on the stomach, pushing up its food contents through the LES into the esophagus.
