Constipation is one of the most common problems during pregnancy, which most women face during some time throughout the nine months of gestation. The pressure of the growing uterus on the rectum and the increase in the hormone progesterone which causes relaxation of the muscles of the digestive tract are two major culprits of constipation during pregnancy. Some women experience it during the first trimester due to sudden change in hormones while other may experience it in the last trimester due to increase in the size of the uterus.

A high fiber diet is what will relieve for constipation. So opt for whole grains, fruits (unpeeled when possible), beans, seeds and all vegetables of your choice. Include these, while avoiding the refined and fried foods as they are devoid of fiber completely.

A slight planning and you will be set for a nourishing fibre rich Healthy Oats Dosa for breakfast. This dosa will keep you satiated for long hours due to the high protein and fibre it abounds in. This dosa is made without rice and thus pregnant women with gestational diabetes can also include it in their diet.

High Fibre Indian Sabzi Recipes for Pregnancy

Sabzi and roti forms a staple diet in India. And why not? It’s healthy if made the right way with controlled amount of oil and spices. Excess of both these ingredients can lead to acidity - a common problem in pregnancy.
