The best way to combat constipation in pregnancy is by changing your diet ... drink lots of water, eat lots of fruit and vegetables, and things in high fibre.

If all fails then you could take lactulose (please discuss this with your doctor or midwife).

Lactulose has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Animal studies failed to reveal evidence of fetal harm. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Lactulose should only be given during pregnancy when need has been clearly established.
