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.
