HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

GERD ( gastroesophageal reflux) is a common problem in pregnancy. It is caused by relaxation of the sphincters (normally stop the acid from going upwards) due to hormones and also due to pressure on the stomach by the fetus.

Treatment involves the use of medication and also avoiding any acidic/spicy/fatty or fried foods. You may also want to use small meals frequently instead of large meals.

I hope this helps
