While there aren’t any medications that can magically cure morning sickness, there are a few things you can try.
First, look at your diet. Spicy and greasy foods are likely to make morning sickness worse, while small, light, and dare we say it, bland meals are less likely to trigger nausea.
Vitamin B6 capsules can help to ease morning sickness, and you can also try sipping water – remember, dehydration will only aggravate morning sickness. Ginger is another herbal remedy that’s been proven to help some women cope with the nausea of morning sickness. For some more ideas sourced from mums like you, see here.
If you really find that you can’t wait until your second trimester to seek help (when most women experience relief from morning sickness) or if you’re losing too much weight, speak to your doctor. Too much weight loss is dangerous for you and your baby, and there are certain over the counter medications that are safe for mums to be.
