Pregnancy, morning sickness, heartburn — oh my!

It is estimated that around 75 percent of pregnant women experience morning sickness during the first trimester, and some women feel nauseous all day long, well into the second trimester. Researchers believe increasing hormone levels throughout the first and second trimester causes morning sickness and nausea.

Heartburn, on the other hand, occurs when acids from the stomach flow back up into the esophagus, causing an uncomfortable burning sensation in the chest. Heartburn is common during pregnancy because the growing baby puts pressure on the intestines, stomach and esophagus, which can slow digestion and increase the likelihood of stomach acid creeping back up into the esophagus.

Fairhaven Health PregEase

Fairhaven Health is a manufacturer of safe, doctor-designed products to promote natural fertility, pregnancy, and breastfeeding health. PregEase ($16) is a new product designed by a team of doctors and nutritionists to aid pregnant women by relieving morning sickness and heartburn.

“Morning sickness and heartburn cause real discomfort for many women during pregnancy,” said Suzanne Munson, director of product development at Fairhaven Health. “Fortunately, there are several natural ingredients that have been scientifically demonstrated to exert a beneficial effect in alleviating these symptoms, including vitamin B6 and ginger. With PregEase, we’ve brought together several of these validated ingredients, and put them into a chewable tablet that tastes good even when you’re feeling nauseous – no small feat.”

PregEase is a unique, multi-ingredient chewable tablet designed to help relieve these common pregnancy complaints. Each chewable tablet includes:
