Here are some cold and cough remedies for pregnant women.

  • Steam inhalation is good for easing nasal congestions. This can be done with plain hot water or by adding eucalyptus or peppermint oil to the water.
  • Warm baths can soothe nasal as well as chest congestions.
  • Drink hot water with lemon and honey to soothe a stuffy nose as well as a sore throat.
  • Drink plenty of fluids rich in vitamin C.
  • Consuming garlic and onion can shorten the duration of the cold.
  • Saltwater gargling helps relieve a sore throat.
  • Another remedy for a sore throat is warm milk with a pinch of turmeric powder, ground pepper, and a teaspoon of honey.
  • In case you experience shortness of breath, use a humidifier in your room to increase the moisture and ease your breathing.
  • Hot bag compresses are useful to ease chest and nasal congestions.

Suffering from a sore throat is one of the more common problems that many women encounter during pregnancy. While it may be easy to grab an over the counter solution for sore throat at any other time, it is best to be more careful when taking various medications while pregnant.

Pregnancy is a special time. One that brings joys and pains. Many minor, but distressing health complaints can accompany pregnancy, such as morning sickness, varicose veins, skin discoloration, hemorrhoids, constipation, folic acid anemia, iron deficiency anemia, muscle/leg cramps, backache, heartburn, fatigue and mood changes, bladder infections, and high blood pressure.

An article by 911 Restoration in regards to Mold Health Hazards for pregnant women and infants. The importance for a complete home decontamination and cleaning including: Home Mold Air Quality Test, Mold Abatement, Carpet Odor Cleaning and Air Duct Cleaning. Which steps needs to be taken to prepare your home for the new baby and the importance of using Safe, non toxic "Green" products for Professional Mold Remediation.
