Pregnancy and Pain

Headaches are a common ailment in pregnancy. They can be caused by hormone changes, stress, changes in posture, lack of sleep, or in some cases, preeclampsia (a condition involving high blood pressure during pregnancy). Trying to combat the root of the problem to prevent headaches is generally the best approach. Use relaxation techniques, eat well, drink plenty of water, maintain good posture, and get some exercise. If a headache does occur, you can try applying cold or heat packs, practicing deep breathing, or relaxing in a dark room. If this doesn't work, talk with your doctor about using acetaminophen.
