Acidity and heartburn are quite common during pregnancy. However, by following simple precautions you can prevent this condition. Dr Aruna Kalra, Director and Senior Gynaecologist Surgeon, CK Birla Hospital shares few simple tips to prevent acidity and reflux during pregnancy.



Do not raise the head of the bed by six inches. This is because, in such a case stomach acids will have to travel uphill to reach the esophagus, which further makes things worse.



Do not take OTC antacids. Disturbance of bowel function is common in pregnancy, which is frequently responsive to conservative medical therapy. However, do not take antacids without consulting from your doctor.
