5 Secrets for Handling Pregnancy Aches and Pains

Pregnancy can come with unwanted aches and pains as your body expands and changes.

Pregnancy aches like lower back pain, headaches, and leg cramps are common, but not unavoidable. Here are some secrets for dealing with the aches and pains of pregnancy.

Pregnancy Aches and Pains
1. Headaches

Headaches can become worse during pregnancy if you already experience them. Try natural remedies such as an ice pack on the back of your head with feet in warm water, or relaxation/biofeedback techniques. Be sure to consult your midwife or OB to make sure any natural remedies, like herbal teas, are safe for baby. If medication is absolutely needed, your doctor can help you decide what is safe.

Acetaminophen is safe to take as directed on the label, but most other headache medications – such as aspirin and ibuprofen, as well as most prescription migraine drugs – aren’t recommended for pregnant women.~BabyCenter
