Pregnancy Headaches


Headaches can occur quite frequently during pregnancy, particularly in the first and third trimesters.


There are several factors that may cause these headaches. Particularly in the first trimester, your

body experiences a surge of hormones and an increase in blood volume. Other factors that can contribute to your headaches is a lack of sleep, dehydration, stress, caffeine withdrawal, or low blood sugar. Sometimes foods such as cheese, yeast, tomatoes, chocolate, and dairy can cause headaches.


In the second and third trimesters, some factors that may contribute to your headaches are weight gain, high blood pressure, posture, diet, and muscle strain.


Some women who are chronic migraine sufferers may experience fewer headaches during pregnancy.


These are some natural remedies you can try for your pregnancy

headaches:


- Drink water

- Apply an ice pack or heating pad to your temple or shoulders

- Massage and loosen your muscles

- Exercise and stretch

- Use essential oils like peppermint, rosemary, or chamomile

- Keep a consistent sleep schedule


It is quite common to experience headaches during pregnancy, but following any of the above steps may

lower the intensity and frequency of your headaches.
