The countdown to the arrival of your little one is an exciting time! But pregnancy can also be a time of little worries, niggles and gripes - one of them being heartburn.
Heartburn is common during pregnancy1 and is said to affect between 30-80% of mums-to-be at some stage (see point 2 below).
Simple dietary and lifestyle changes may be enough to control mild symptoms ((see point 1 below).
These include eating small meals often, cutting down on caffeine and rich, spicy or fatty foods and sitting up straight when you eat to take pressure off your stomach (see point 1 below).
Regular, good-quality sleep is essential for health and wellbeing - especially when you have a baby on the way. If heartburn is disrupting your slumber, try propping up your head and shoulders when you go to bed to help stop stomach acid coming up while you sleep (see point 1 below).
If you need help to manage your symptoms or changes to your diet and lifestyle aren’t working, speak to your midwife or GP - they may recommend medicines to ease your symptoms (see point 1 below).
Pyrocalm Control 20mg Gastro-Resistant Tablets* contain omeprazole, a widely used treatment for indigestion, heartburn and acid reflux which can be taken by pregnant and breastfeeding women over 18 years of age (see point 3 below).
IMPORTANT: Medicines can affect the unborn baby. Always talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking any medicine in pregnancy.
*Essential Information: Pyrocalm Control® 20mg Gastro-Resistant Tablets. For the short-term treatment of reflux symptoms in adults. Contains 20mg Omeprazole. Always read the label.
