Sam Coulter-Smith, former Master of the Rotunda Hospital, says: “Hay fever does not get worse in pregnancy, but your sinuses can feel more congested during pregnancy even if you don’t suffer from hay fever. We usually advise women not to use medication especially in early pregnancy but if your symptoms are bad you should consult your doctor who can prescribe one of the safe medications in pregnancy.”

The allergic reaction occurs when the pollen enters your nose and throat, so the best way to prevent the reaction is to clean our your nasal passages. Simply add the sachet of powder to lukewarm water in the special bottle and squirt up one nostril until it flows out the other nostril. Yes it feels odd and disgusting but trust us, this works.
