Headaches during pregnancy are very challenging as over the counter pain killers are not recommended. Read on to see what you can do to relieve the pain from your headaches during pregnancy.
First of all let's address why some pregnant women suffer from headaches during pregnancy. Within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy the surging hormones play a part in the development of pregnancy headaches. The 40% increase in blood volume that occurs during pregnancy increases pressure within the blood vessels and this itself can cause pregnancy headaches. Headaches during the last month of pregnancy may also be caused by a condition called preeclampsia, which is associated with high blood pressure, swelling and protein in the urine.



It is normal to have headaches during pregnancy because of the above reasons plus the following:
  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Vomiting
  • Low blood sugar
  • Dehydration
  • Caffeine withdrawal
  • Nicotine withdrawal
  • Poor posture
  • Pregnancy related vision changes
What you can do to ease your pregnancy headaches:

  • Reduce stress.
  • Get more sleep.
  • Treat your early morning sickness.
  • Eat regularly to avoid low blood sugar levels.
  • Drink adequate amounts of high quality water.
  • Get chiropractic adjustments and advice to correct your posture.
  • Avoid over the counter medication especially during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
  • Consult a homeopath or an acupuncturist for treatments to relieve your pain.
  • Pregnancy headaches are sometimes relieved with either hot or cold compress around your forehead and on the back of your neck.
  • Have someone massage your shoulders and neck during acute pregnancy headaches.
  • Rest in a dark room and practice deep relaxation breathing.
  • Relaxing in a warm bath or shower sometimes reduces the stress and tension.
  • The fruit mangosteen is well known to support every system in the body. It is all natural and can relieve and prevent pregnancy headaches.

You tried all the above and you still have a pregnancy headache:
At this point it would be appropriate to call your doctor or midwife for advice. Have your eyesight checked as you may need glasses or a change in glasses.
 If you experience any of these symptoms below with a headache call your physician or midwife immediately as these are signs of a severe pregnancy complication called pre-eclampsia:
  • Blurred vision
  • Right sided abdomen pain
  • Swollen hands and face
  • Sudden weight gain
  • Feeling very agitated or restless
 Pregnancy headaches can be very painful and very frustrating, as it is not recommended that you use over the counter medication during pregnancy. I have assisted pregnant women in the past to make their headaches a little more manageable or made them go away with a one on one coaching-healing phone sessions.
Many of my pregnant clients have experienced improvement of their pregnancy headaches by taking mangosteen juice. Mangosteen is present in different quantities in different products.
