    I always have heartburn when I’m pregnant. My midwife suggested papaya and I found the dried papaya was too super sweet I was pregnant. I get heartburn occasionally still, I would love to try an extract or tea.

    I used papaya during every pregnancy to aid in digestion of my meals since it definitely slowed down and I would suffer with heartburn, otherwise. They were tablets and very yummy. This really sounds like a high quality product and I would love to win it and try it. Thank you for offering this!
