Morning Sickness -don’t fear! By Dr. Beena Jeysingh
It is an uncomfortable feeling of just nausea or nausea with vomiting experienced in the early
weeks of pregnancy due to hormones. About 50 percent of pregnant women experience it.
Usually starts around 6weeks of pregnancy and disappears by end of 3months though rarely can
stay until end of pregnancy. Report to obstetrician if excess vomitting, less or dark color urine,
blood in vomitus. Management is by intake of frequent small feeds and in severe cases
medications to reduce vomiting.
