Why do some pregnant women suffer from heartburn?
During pregnancy, the placenta produces the hormone progesterone which relaxes the uterus muscles and the valve that separates the oesophagus from the stomach.
This results in gastric acids seeping back up into the oesophagus, causing heartburn. Other contributing factors are certain foods that cause heartburn in some pregnant women and “crowding” in the abdomen (baby growing) which pushes stomach acids back up into the oesophagus.
“Thanks to you (Sophia at The Other Option) and Maree at my local health shop, I am able to think of my pregnancy (my baby) and enjoy it, not worrying about having heartburn and morning sickness. And thanks to God for blessing the world with people like the two of you”.
