ABSTRACT To determine the risk factors related to heartburn in pregnant women attending the antenatal care clinic, Rajavithi Hospital.
Self-reporting questionnaire about demographic data and risk factors related to heartburn in those pregnant women between May 1 and July 31, 2010.
Heartburn was found in 55 out of 452 pregnant women (12.2%). There were no significant differences in demographic characteristics and risk factors between the heartburn and non-heartburn groups. Consumption of alcoholic drinks was a reversely significant risk factor of heartburn (OR 0.11, CI 0.01 to 0.78) (p = 0.005).
Heartburn was not uncommon, and no associated factors were demonstrated.
