Treatments and Supplements to Help With Morning Sickness

Morning sickness can be tremendously frustrating. For some women, it can even interfere with your daily life. It can cause you problems at work and at home, and can make your pregnancy generally less enjoyable. If you’re not careful, morning sickness can rob you of some of the joy you ought to be experiencing during those early weeks of pregnancy.

While you can’t eliminate morning sickness altogether, there are a variety of treatments and supplements you may be able to use in order to ease your morning sickness, and to help you make it through the day. Here are just some of the treatments and supplements to help with morning sickness:

Preggie Pops

These are lollipops that incorporate herbal ingredients to help reduce your morning sickness. There are a number of reasons that these are effective. One of the reasons that they work so well is that they activate your digestive system, and help keep things moving along. Simply generating saliva can help to reduce your nausea to some degree. They come in flavors such as mint, lavender and ginger, as well as a number of sour flavors including raspberry, lemon and tangerine.

Sea Bands

There are also several types of wristbands that can help with morning sickness. In many cases, they were originally designed to help with motion sickness, hence the “sea” bands moniker. Some of these use acupressure points to alleviate your nausea, while others use magnets. These sea bands have the benefit of not using any drugs or having any side effects, and they’ve been clinically proven to help alleviate nausea.


One of the oldest treatments for nausea, ginger is still one of the best. Whether you use ginger root supplements, ginger tea or even ginger aromatherapy, you may find that this is your most effective method of reducing your morning sickness. For some women, simply having a glass of ginger ale can sufficiently calm your morning sickness and allow you to go about your day in a productive way.
