Tell your doctor before using any natural remedies.
1.) Foods that can cause heartburn during pregnancy include chocolate, peppermint, caffeinated beverages (such as coffee, tea, and soft drinks), fatty foods, and alcohol.
2.) Because heartburn during pregnancy is thought to be caused by pregnancy hormones, heartburn will usually go away after delivery and no further treatment is needed.
3.) Heartburn during pregnancy is caused by a combination of pregnancy hormones and the growing baby inside you pushing on your abdominal organs. Fortunately, heartburn during pregnancy usually goes away after delivery.
4.)Foods may also aggravate heartburn during pregnancy. All the same foods that cause heartburn in non-pregnant people can cause heartburn during pregnancy, including: chocolate, peppermint, caffeinated beverages (such as coffee, tea, and soft drinks), fatty foods, and alcohol.
5.) Raise the head of your bed
The two feet of the head of the bed should be raised on 6 to 8 inch blocks. Alternatively, a 6 to 8 inch wedge-shaped foam rubber pad should be used to elevate the upper body.
6.) Lay on your left side at night
7.) Don't bend over after eating
After meals avoid activities that require you to bend over. Instead take a short walk, do light housework, or surf the internet to avoid bending over.
8.) Bend right
Don't bend at the waist; bend at the knees instead.
9.) Avoid tight clothing
Avoid tight clothing, which puts pressure on your abdomen and can aggravate reflux.
10.) Eat yogurt or drink milk
Eating yogurt or drinking a glass of milk may help ease heartburn symptoms. If you are lactose intolerant choose lactose free products.
11.) Foods to avoid heartburn during pregnancy
Any specific foods that aggravate heartburn should be avoided (for example, coffee, cola, tea, alcohol, chocolate, fatty or fried foods, citrus fruits and juices, spicy foods, tomato, mint, etc.).
12.) Eat small, frequent meals
Frequent, small meals should be eaten rather than three large meals, and the last meal of the day should be early in the evening at least three hours before bedtime. Women who are pregnant and have heartburn should not lie down soon after a meal.
13.) Don't eat so fast!
Slow down when you eat. Eating too quickly can lead to heartburn. Eating slowly can keep you from becoming too full, which can also result in heartburn.
14.) Cut out large amounts of liquids
Try not to drink large amounts of liquids after the last meal of the day because the more empty the stomach is at bedtime, the less likely there will be reflux of acid.
15.) Sip liquids
Sip liquids instead of drinking large glasses of liquids at once.
17.) Other home remedies for heartburn during pregnancy
Other home and natural remedies for heartburn include apple cider vinegar, 2-3 teaspoons in an 8-ounce glass of water. It is believed that even though apple cider vinegar is acidic, it helps balance the acid production in the stomach or buffer the acid activity.
There is no evidence that homeopathic remedies work to treat heartburn during pregnancy. If you are interested in trying a homeopathic remedy, talk to your doctor first, and consult a registered homeopath.
Hope this helps.
