Bicobonate of Soda
Hi doc I' m currently 6 months pregnant, and nothing seems to work to calm my heartburn, now I know this way before I felt pregnant and I' m wondering what harm does it do to me and the unborn child if I take it bicabonate of soda with milk, my heart burn just dispears, but I' m worried it might affect me and my unborn child in a very bad way. What are my chances?

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

You should not be concerned that the Bicarbonate Soda will be harmful to you and your unborn child. I do however, recommend that you use Gaviscon Advanced, as this is a very effective and safe product to use during pregnancy.

Kind regards
