6 Natural Ways to Cope with Morning Sickness

A more accurate name for morning sickness is Nausea and Vomiting During Pregnancy (NVP) since morning sickness is not just isolated to the morning for approximately 80% of the women that have it. It typically occurs between the 6th and 12th weeks of pregnancy. However, it’s not uncommon for it to continue until the 16th week of pregnancy (and even longer for some unlucky women). 

Although for most women, morning sickness does not cause harm to the mother or child, 1% of women develop what is known as hyperemesis gravidarum, a extreme form of morning sickness that causes dehydration and weight loss usually resulting in hospitalization. If you think this might be you, stop reading and call your health care provider immediately. (Interesting Fact: Women who suffer from hyperemesis gravidarum are more likely to have a girl than a boy.)
