Constipation in pregnancy

When you've just found out you're pregnant, given birth or are nursing your new born, you're probably even more aware than normal about your health, and your baby's, too.

You probably know that feeling sick and getting a touch of heartburn are common pregnancy symptoms, but did you know that constipation is really common when you're pregnant, even though people don't talk about it so much? Trust us, you're not alone.

Seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure about what to take during pregnancy and breast-feeding and always read the label.
