Nausea And Vomiting In Pregnancy

Nausea and vomiting in early pregnancy is common. It is related to a pregnancy hormone that peaks at approx 10-12 weeks and falls rapidly thereafter.

Simple measures to control nausea are often successful:

  • Eating small, frequent meals through the day. Avoiding foods that may precipitate nausea
  • Drink plenty of fluids (small amounts throughout the day)
  • Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) 25mg three times per day (available over the counter)
  • Ginger tablets

If these measures do not work, please call me through the rooms to discuss other options.
