How to Treat a Cold or Flu When You’re Pregnant - Winter care tips.

Dealing with a cold or flu while pregnant can feel extra tough, but there are ways to help you feel better without risking your baby's well-being.

Coping with a Cold During Pregnancy:

Rest and Sip Away: Give yourself the gift of rest and drink plenty of fluids like water, tea, or comforting soups. It helps your body fight the bug and keeps you hydrated.

Ease that Blocked Nose: Try saline nasal sprays or drops to clear congestion. They're safe and can really help you breathe better.

Steamy Comfort: Take a relaxing warm bath or sit in a steamy bathroom. It's soothing and can ease those congested airways.

Natural Relief: A spoonful of honey with a squeeze of lemon in warm water can soothe a sore throat. Ginger tea might also calm your tummy.
