Pregnant and heartburn

Image result for pregnancy

During your pregnancy you can suffer from an annoying problem: heartburn. This is partly because the sphincter of the stomach relaxes by hormones and on the other hand (later in the pregnancy) by the baby pushing against the stomach. The use of gastric acid inhibitors can provide some relief, but also costs important nutrients, especially vitamin B12.

Then what? A bite of yellow custard, a cup of milk, a small bowl full of yogurt are good ways to relax the stomach. On the go you can take a bite of dry oat flakes or a pack of dry crackers. This also works wonders! And no extra meals with lots of ingredients (extensive eating out with dessert), coffee, black tea or fried food. They bring the stomach out of balance.

Ginger tea also strengthens the stomach, helps preventively with heartburn and prevents nausea.
