Constipation is a fairly common problem among pregnant women. Research shows that it affects nearly 50% of expecting moms – predominantly during the first and third trimester. Though it does not harm the baby in any way, it can cause a lot of abdominal discomfort due to associated problems like heart burn, bloating and indigestion.
Constipation can be tackled with simple natural remedies. However, most women find it embarrassing to talk about it and end up suffering in silence.
