Effect Of Garlic On Pregnant Women

Garlic is one of the healthiest herbs, and people eat it in almost every part of the world. Studies have shown that eating garlic can help with some health problems, but that doesn't mean that garlic is good and healthy for everyone.

In fact, it has been shown that eating a lot of garlic during pregnancy can have some negative effects. So, in this article, we'll look at what eating garlic may do to pregnant women, based on a report from Healthline. Just relax, read this article, and enjoy it while you learn something new.

What does garlic do for women who are pregnant?

Research shows that pregnant women should be careful about how they eat garlic. Because garlic can give pregnant women heartburn and stomachaches. Most of the time, this happens when a woman has GERD or IBS.

Also, eating a lot of garlic may make a woman bleed more during labor, especially if she is also taking blood thinners. Garlic on its own thins the blood, so eating it during pregnancy can make the bleeding during childbirth worse, which is not good in any way.
