1.Botulism is a paralytic disease caused by bacteria found in honey. The adult human has a digestive track which is less conducive for the growth of this type of bacteria unless you have an abnormal digestive system.Toxin from this bacteria cannot pass into the placenta via diffusion.

2.Heartburns are common for all women going thru pregnancy.Ancient folklore advocated the use of honey mixed with milk to counter the acidity in the stomach.
3.It is a great substitute to pharmaceutical syrups for cough, colds and scratchy throats when one is pregnant. This is the preferred and gentler method of cough management, as you are in a delicate state. Our Royal Rania Sumar honey is known for its anti-cough properties.
4. Morning sickness relief management is done by mixing honey with a hot cup of ginger tea.
5.Urinary tract infection can be managed with cranberry juice but pure Sumar or Sidr honey is known for its anti-bacterial properties and is a better fix than alot of anti-biotics.
Once again, please consult your GP if in doubt or to clarify. Do not give infants below 12 months honey if you want to err on the side of caution.
