Pregnancy and Migraine?

  • By BeckyC

    Hi guys so myself and my partner are planning our first baby! So as well as having all the usual first time mum worries, a huge worry is migraines during pregnancy. I’m worried as I won’t be able to take my usual aspirin, ponstan or dizepam. The thoughts of just paracetamol makes me shiver in my boots as it doesn’t even make a dent in the pain. So how did other mums cope during pregnancy?! Any tips are very welcome and alternative therapy ideas welcome! Thanks in advance 😊

    Honestly my husband and I are on the same boat. I am extremely nervous about how bad they may get, however my mother who also gets migraines suggested trying certain essential oils. I use the peppermint on occasion right now which sometimes help with the pain but sometimes the smell can be too strong. There are other oils out there that help with migraines and most of them are pregnancy friendly and all natural! Worth a try if you don’t mind using them!

    I will definitely look into some of the oil options! We are only trying to conceive at the moment and my anxiety is fairly high about it. I’ve been really lucky to find that aspirin can completely stop an attack in its tracks but that won’t be an option soon all going well. Maybe we will be some of the lucky ones and the migraines will be reduced. Best of luck and I hope you too find something that works for you x
