It happens in some cases after 20 + weeks of pregnancy firstly due to increase in size of uterus ,which push diaphragm upward secondly due to over medication and regular investigation and evaluation ,it creates doubts in the mind that all is not well. Reassurance and counciling required. Regular rest after meal. Minimum medication maximum nutrition containing balanced ingredients and change in life style. Continue treatment + Haptoglobin +unizyme 2TSF BD AFTER meal.

Thanks Dr Ramesh Kumar Singh
