Heartburn During Pregnancy

Heartburn is a problem that affects people of all ages. It affects men and women alike. In women, we often see problems with heartburn during pregnancy. During pregnancy, what you essentially have is the baby growing and growing inside the body, and as it does, it can actually push up and cause pressure. So that when the stomach is actually doing its job secreting acid, breaking down food, that acid can be pushed up into the esophagus. That’s what causes the pain of heartburn. 

We always appreciate your comments.
