Morning sickness is the toughest part of early pregnancy. If you are suffering from nausea, vomiting, or both, you need safe measures that will bring you some relief. Your best course of action for managing morning sickness is home treatment. By following a few proven guidelines, you are likely to gain significant relief from nausea and vomiting.

Causes of Morning Sickness/Nausea

  • The exact causes are still unknown.
  • Most agree that it is due to hormonal changes in the body (estrogen, progesterone levels).

Home Treatments of Morning Sickness/Nausea

Morning sickness can get progressively worse if untreated, it is important to treat it via:

  • Changing what, when, and how much you eat.Taking ginger, vitamin B6, or vitamin B12, which are known to reduce nausea and/or vomiting during pregnancy.
  • Avoiding foods and smells that make you feel sick.
  • Trying acupuncture, which seems to work for some women.

Some preventative measures include:

  • Ensure you do not have an empty stomach throughout the day.
