Absolutely! In fact, these are preferable as they are risk-free to you and your developing baby.
Colds are common nuisances in pregnancy! Many women want to avoid taking unnecessary medications in pregnancy, and with a cold there are many things you can try to help your symptoms that don’t involve a prescription. These include:
- Making sure you get adequate rest and nutrition
- Saline nasal sprays
- Using a humidifier
- Salt water gargling
- Sore throat lozenges
Of course, if you have a fever, are not improving, or feel unwell enough to keep food or liquids down or take care of yourself, be sure to let your doctor or midwife know.
