YOU CAN AVOID FOODS, NO BIG MEALS, ESPECIALLY AVOID EATING LATE AT NIGHT BUT SOMETIMES NONE OF THAT HELPS HERE’S A PILLOW THAT’S ACTUALLY CLASSIFIED AS AN FDA MEDICAL DEVICE FOR REFLUX RELIEF SHE HAD WHAT SHE DESCRIBED AS A NORMAL PREGNANCY WITH HER NOW 6-MONTH-OLD BABY DAUGHTER NO COMPLICATIONS, NATURAL CHILDBIRTH, BUT SHE DID HAVE ONE UNPLEASANT SYMPTOM WHEN SHE WENT TO BED ESPECIALLY IN HER THIRD TRIMESTER YOU JUST START FEELING THE ACID, GOING UP YOUR THROAT

Reporter: IT’S EASY TO SEE HOW THE GROWING BABY PUTS PRESSURE ON A WOMAN’S STOMACH, PUSHING STOMACH ACID INTO THE THROAT THIS SPECIALIST SAYS AS MANY AS HALF OF ALL PREGNANT WOMEN WILL HAVE ACID REFLUX SYMPTOMS, MAYBE A THIRD NEEDING MEDICINE FOR RELIEF BUT — MANY WOMEN WANT TO USE AS FEW MEDICATIONS AS POSSIBLE DURING PREGNANCY Reporter: THAT’S WHAT LED A REFLUX-SUFFERING PHYSICIAN TO DESIGN A KIND OF DEVICE CALLED MED-CLINE TO REDUCE MEDICATIONS IT’S A SOPHISTICATED OF THE FOAM WEDGE OFTEN SUBJECTED TO THOSE WITH ACID REFLUX
