Digestive problems like constipation and diarrhea are common in women during pregnancy. However, ignoring it can greatly affect the health of you and the coming child. There can be many reasons for the problem of loose motion (diarrhea) in women during pregnancy, such as changes in hormones, changes in diet and routine, and excess stress.
Disturbances in eating during pregnancy can cause loose motion.
