Diarrhoea during Pregnancy

More often than not pregnancy increases the incidence of constipation. However it may seem that hormones have thrown your digestive system into chaos and you may experience diarrhoea. Sometimes diarrhoea is a sign of your body purging toxins it no longer wants.

  • Well-cooked brown rice is the best food to eat.
  • Avoid unripe or acidic fruits and juices.
  • Freshly squeezed carrot and apple juice with mint can help stabilise the intestinal tract.
  • Drink teas of chammomile, peppermint, aniseed, rosehip, lemon verbena tea, varying them as desired.
  • Well-cooked eggs help bind your stools.
  • Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration.
  • Avoid excess fibre until the diarrhoea passes.
  • Make sure you are taking Lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus to provide positive bowel flora.
  • Diarrhoea can often signal sensitivity to a certain food you are eating.
  • Keep a food diary to identify a pattern of culprit foods.
