PREGNANCY

Pregnancy is one of the most exciting times in your life.  Most women are filled with joy, excitement and anticipation.  However, it is also one of the times in your life where you will have the most questions.  Questions about what is safe to eat, activities you can participate in, or other common questions about safety for both you and your baby. Pregnancy information is available through the American Pregnancy Association.

Nine months is a long journey and most mothers usually experience common discomforts and health challenges.  Headaches, nausea, heartburn, allergies, a cold or the flu.  These common challenges are followed with questions like:

  • “What can I take for a headache?’
  • Is it safe to use this during the flu?
  • Can I take an over-the-counter (OTC) medicine for my allergies?
  • What will make this morning sickness go away?

These are just some of the common questions women have as they navigate the journey of pregnancy.  The good news is that Nurse Hotline is here to help get you connected to the health care providers who can make a difference with your specific needs.
