Brief Answer:
Steam inhalation

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

The best and safest remedy for dry cough in pregnant women would be steam inhalation. Steam inhalation taken three times a day with Eucalyptus oil in it would help to get rid of the cough.

Do not allow her to take any medication for the cough, as such medications would harm her.
