Sick of feeling sick?

During pregnancy you are more likely to get sick. This is because your body's natural ability to fight infections is lower than normal. So you may find you catch common viruses such as coughs, colds and the flu.

Now that you are pregnant, you cannot always take the same medicines that you would have taken before. Sometimes these medicines can be harmful to you or your baby. You may need to rely on getting plenty of rest, having warm drinks and just waiting for your body to heal itself.

If you don't get better in a few days or think that you may be getting a chest infection, then you need to go to the clinic.

Tell your chemist you are pregnant before you accept any medicine from them.
