Natural remedy for fluid retention

thankyou, Natasha.

Answer: Hi Natasha, Fluid retention tends to happen later in pregnancy. This is a side effect of pregnancy as you do retain more fluid during pregnancy to support the baby. It is not advisable to try to get rid of the fluid. You can help lessen its effects by raising your legs at times through the day and getting regular exercise. Best wishes, Alex.
