Try these four natural flu remedies during pregnancy:

  • Use sugar or honey-based lozenges to relieve sore throats and cough.
  • Get plenty of bed rest.
  • Drink ample fluids, such as water, juice, and caffeine-free tea.
  • Put an air humidifier in your room to provide extra moisture, which can help reduce congestion.
