    Yeah its fine to take but they recommend u leave a couple of hours before & after the iron tablet so that the iron is absorbed properly, nothing major will happen if u have em together just means the iron wont work as well as it should do. :)

    Im pretty sure you can take it with iron tablets. You dont need to pay for heartburn relief. Ask your midwife, she cant give you it but she can arrange a prescription for it. Its quite pricey.
    Its not a benefits thing, you dont pay for prescriptions till a year after bean is born.

    You'll need tonnes of it!!! If that fails, try milk! (Kylie knows...although it seems like a lifetime ago now!)

    They only had aniseed in local chemist when I got some, and the whole taste/texture of it makes me gag, :puke: but it does seem to relieve the heartburn for a bit!
