Heartburn during pregnancy…many of us have experienced it. Many times it begins sometime during the the second trimester. So what are some ways to cure the burn?

1) Cut back on caffeine intake.

2) Try sipping on ginger or mint tea.

3) Eat smaller portions during the day, rather than three large meals. Spacing out your meal intake has been noted to keep stomach acid at bay.

4) Avoid spicy foods.

5) Neutralize your stomach acid by eating foods such as yogurt or by drinking a glass of milk.

“Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood – finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.”

― Jodi Picoult, Perfect Match
