How is morning sickness treated?

There are many things that can trigger morning sickness and they can vary between women. By working out what triggers your morning sickness and avoiding it, you can reduce your symptoms. Common triggers include stuffy rooms, lots of noise and strong smells. Because motion can be a trigger, you may be able to reduce your symptoms by moving slowly, particularly when getting out of bed or standing up from being seated, and by avoiding excessive exercise. A change in your diet may treat morning sickness. You may find it helpful to eat high-protein foods, eating smaller meals more frequently rather than larger servings, and eating some dry crackers upon waking. Complementary therapies, such as eating ginger, or having acupuncture or acupressure, may also ease your symptoms. If symptoms persist and are severe, your doctor can prescribe you medications that will be safe to take during pregnancy.
