  • Ginger tea or raspberry tea worked for me.... or ginger ale. I had to alternate with my last pregnancy

  • Apple and Pineapple both have pectin in them which are natural acid reducers. I would cut up an apple and eat a slice every half hour or so during the day (when I started feeling it coming back up again). Smaller meals, tums, sleeping on an incline might help too.

  • Papaya Capsules work quite well most Health food stores carry them and Fresh Papaya helps too.
