Pregnancy Reflux

Again, virtually EVERY pregnant woman (and many who are not pregnant) has reflux – gastro-esophageal reflux. Pregnancy reflux, or reflux of pregnancy.

Gastro-esophageal reflux. GER or GERD.

Many reasons for that, not the least of which is that growing life that is crowding out the other things in your pelvis and abdomen, including your stomach. That’s an over-simplification, of course, but let’s agree on this: if you’re pregnant, you are probably struggling with reflux.

Symptoms of Pregnancy Reflux Include:

  • burping
  • heartburn
  • sour tase
  • bad breath

There are many tips and tricks to help reduce your reflux during pregnancy (stay tuned for the boogordoctor’s eBook on this topic), but here is one that you won’t often hear:

Why Ginger?

BONUS: Ginger is a great natural remedy for the dreaded “morning sickness”.

What kind of Ginger?
