'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

My daughter is pregnant and she has reflux almost all the time! Any advice for pregnant women?

I'm pregnant too, had reflux before and now it is worse. I take Zantac 150 2x a day (supposed to be very safe) and mylanta when needed. I try to only eat very small portions of bland food, nothing heavy, throughout the day. Avoiding garlic and onion as well as spicy foods and cooked tomato helps. No chocolate. I don't think there is any way to make it completely go away while pregnant, but last time after I had the baby it did improve significantly so at least knowing that it should improve or ends helps A bit

Thanks a lot for ur comment, does it make ur cough worse too? Coz she s confused if it's the common cold or due to the high acidity she has now too! She has to start a gerd diet for sure but can't give up the cup of coffee in the morning although she has just one with almond milk!

Jackline Tannouri I have been unable to give up my coffee as well. Pure roast brand is very low acidity, also lates have been somewhat tolerable to me (espresso has low acidity). I haven't noticed that milk makes my reflux worse, although some people do. I am just getting over a bad cough. I don't know if the reflux made the cough worse but I have noticed that any illness makes the reflux MUCH worse. She probably has a cold. The immune system is shot when pregnant.

Thank a lot Aileen for all the useful informations. Hope u ok pregnancy will go gently and the delivery safe. Good luck . But can I ask u which brand do u get for the coffee?

Pure roast. They carry it at some grocery stores or you can order it online. It tastes pretty weak but better than no coffee at all.
