Ringing in my ears: tinnitus in pregnancy.

Author information

NIHR Nottingham Hearing Biomedical Research Unit.


A number of ear, nose and throat symptoms are often associated with pregnancy, which although transient (most will disappear after birth), can have a significant impact on the woman's quality of life. It is essential therefore that midwives are aware of how such symptoms might present during pregnancy, in order to appropriately inform women and safely manage those symptoms. Tinnitus, the most common ear symptom experienced by women during pregnancy, for some will be a distressing experience and for others may indicate more serious conditions such as pre eclampsia, requiring careful monitoring and confident management.
