Natural Morning Sickness Remedies

Share |

Around 70 percent of all pregnant women will have at least a little bit of morning sickness during pregnancy. What’s unfortunate about morning sickness is the fact that many of the medications you might otherwise use for nausea or an upset stomach haven’t been tested to be safely used by pregnant women. In addition, many women choose to avoid medications whenever possible during pregnancy, even if they may usually be considered safe. Fortunately, there are a number of natural morning sickness remedies that you can consider to help with your suffering.

Here are some of the best natural morning sickness remedies:

  • Ginger. Ginger has long been used to help calm an upset stomach, and it’s a wonderful option during pregnancy. Ginger tea is one way you can use ginger to soothe your morning sickness. Ginger supplements may be another way. Some women experience success with a ginger ale soda, but you’ll want to make sure you’re avoiding too much caffeine of course.
  • Other supplements. In addition to ginger, there are a variety of other nutritional supplements that you might consider using for morning sickness, such as peppermint. Peppermint teas, supplements using peppermint and other sources of peppermint are also very often good options.
  • Prevention. One of the most important natural remedies for morning sickness is more along the lines of prevention. It is important to avoid those things that might trigger your morning sickness. This would include things like foods that are high in saturated fats, foods that are spicy, and foods that tend to have strong smells. In addition, eating small and frequent meals rather than 3 large meals during the day may help with morning sickness, as it will keep you from feeling either too hungry or too full. In addition, prenatal vitamins may occasionally be responsible for morning sickness, though if you believe this to be the case you should definitely speak with your health care provider before you stop taking them.

The good news is that your morning sickness, eventually, will go away. By about the 12th week of pregnancy, you can expect it to dissipate, giving you some relief from some of those early frustrations of pregnancy.
