This is a situation that affects most expectant mothers. It can happen at any period of pregnancy, but it often happens at the age of three months of pregnancy.
In this section I will explain what causes this situation.
WHAT IS HEARTBURN?
Heartburn is a burning pain that occurs in the chest in the middle part of the chest.
This pain has nothing to do with the heart. It happens when the acid in the stomach rises and returns to the throat. This acid in the stomach does not cause harm or pain because it is produced all the time by the walls of the stomach digesting food.
The cells of the stomach walls are not affected by this acid, which is why when it is in the stomach, it does not cause any problems, but the cells of the walls of the food throat cannot withstand this acid, which is why when it rises in the throat, you get heartburn pain.
