How to avoid constipation during pregnancy?
Pregnancy is the time when your digestion can take a backseat. Most of the body energies are channelized towards the growing baby.
To avoid constipation drink plenty of fluids and eat foods with lots of fibre, such as fruits, vegetables and bran cereal. Whole grains like wheat, bulgar, jowar etc have traditionally been extensively used in Indian cooking and are good sources of fibre.
Laxatives should not be taken without first discussing with your doctor. Plain Isabgol can be safely taken anytime during pregnancy.
