During pregnancy some women may suffer from both heartburn (acid reflux) and indigestion and the condition tends to become more common as the pregnancy progresses. In fact, it can arise as early as the second trimester.
The symptoms of heartburn and indigestion are similar for anyone who suffers. This condition can be painful and can make you feel uncomfortable1.
If you experience these symptoms, why not try Gaviscon Double Strength to provide you with relief that will help you feel comfortable again1.
Gaviscon Double Strength is suitable for use during all stages of pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Studies show that 9 out of 10 pregnant women found Gaviscon Double Strength Liquid gave rapid effective relief from symptoms of heartburn (reflux) in pregnancy1. Gaviscon works by forming a barrier over the stomach contents and is not absorbed, therefore poses no theoretical harm for mother or baby1.
There are two main reasons why heartburn and, to a lesser extent, indigestion are common during pregnancy.
Gaviscon Double Strength can help you obtain relief from the troublesome effects of heartburn & indigestion1
