Lifestyle and Complementary Medicine for Common Gastrointestinal Disorders in Pregnancy

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Gastrointestinal disorders including nausea, vomiting, heartburn, and constipation are common in pregnancy. While safe and effective pharmacotherapy exists to ameliorate the symptoms of these conditions, many women prefer a more natural approach through lifestyle modifications or complementary medicine. Evidence concerning some of the most commonly used lifestyle or complementary medicine interventions is discussed, as well as their associated adverse effects and safety in pregnancy.
