Many wish for migraine relief in Vancouver, especially pregnant mothers. There are many cases of women experiencing migraines during pregnancy, some even reporting they never had any migraines before they became pregnant.
Migraines during pregnancy happen due to the hormonal changes in the body as the infant develops and grows. Another factor is that, in general, women experience three times more migraines than men. Pregnancy adds more risk of having migraines.

It puts the baby at high risk of being born with congenital heart defects.
