This discomfort and lack of sleep can leave women feeling truly miserable and so reflux during pregnancy should never be underestimated and accepted as just “one of those things” that pregnant women have to put up with..."
I was recently asked by Shona and Cecile from Wriggly Rascals to write a guest post about reflux during pregnancy. I suffered from this during my own pregnancy and have read quite a bit about it during my research for the HG book, so was more than happy to oblige. You can read the full article by clicking on the "read more..." link above.
