Your immunity during pregnancy does get compromised to an extent due to the numerous changes taking place in your body. Where eating healthy,  staying hydrated, and staying active are the keys to keeping away the illness, at times it is natural that you may have a stuffy and runny nose during pregnancy. It could be due to a change in the weather, mild allergy, or any other reason. Taking medicines during pregnancy might not be the best option as it could have side effects. An alternative to treat such cold is by using home remedies like:

Ginger and warm water

Adding a small piece of ginger to warm water and having it during cold can help fight the infection to an extent. It’s one of the best home remedies followed widely in several Indian homes.

Warm soups

Eating healthy and providing the body with essential vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients help to fight infection. Having warm soups made with tomato, broccoli, chicken, etc are some good options to incorporate when having cold.

Lemon with honey

Another home remedy followed from ages that help fighting cold. Having warm water with 1 spoon of honey and lemon juice can support your recovery from cold and cough.

Besides these 3 remedies getting adequate rest, practicing mild exercises, doing yoga, and taking steam can also help faster recovery from a runny nose (cold).
