What about natural remedies such as acupressure bands, ginger etc that are supposed to work? Can these help reduce the symptoms of morning sickness?



There is no specific safe remedy that will work for one and all. It is really a trial and error situation for many. Ginger works to relieve the feeling of fullness that contributes to nausea. Tablet form can be taken or in fresh forms such as ginger-based teas, candies etc but the potency of these is less than the tablet. Check with your doctor on B6 supplement which is known to provide relief. Travel bands or Sea-bands work on the principle of acupressure primarily for motion sickness. Applying pressure on the inner surfaces of the wrists has effectively reduced the nausea in some 60% of pregnant ladies. Avoid herbal remedies that you are dubious about and stick with those that have worked on pregnant women - a safer bet will be a cup of chamomile or peppermint tea to quell the uneasy feeling. Check with your doctor when in doubt about alternative measures. If nothing seems to work seek your doctor's advice on medications that will help.
