During pregnancy one can suffer from acidity due to hormonal changes happening inside the body. These hormonal changes as well as the fetal development that can put pressure on the stomach, can affect the digestive system, resulting into acidity. In addition to this, eating meals at irregular time or consuming fried and fatty food items can result in acidity too. To deal with acidity one can adopt some home remedies. In case if the natural cures don’t work for you, take doctor’s advice before going in for any kind of medication by oneself.
To avoid acidity, one must avoid the intake of fried and fatty food products. If not able to resist, one can start by consuming lots of fresh fruits, followed by what one desires and each time try to reduce the quantity of such items. Eventually, one can avoid them totally.
