Canadian guide updates ways to fight Morning Sickness.

New Update

The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists hopes that updated treatment guidelines to fight morning sickness will help women better manage the gut-wrenching condition.

Dr. Jennifer Blake, CEO of the professional medical organization said that between 50 and 80 per cent of women get affected by nausea or vomiting or both during pregnancy, yet many don't seek treatment because they worry about the potential risks of medications on the developing fetus.

She suggested that there are many safe and effective pharma and non-pharmacological options available.

The SOGC document advises women suffering from pregnancy-related digestive upset to start with non- drug treatments such as ginger, vitamin B6 and acupressure to ease their symptoms.

Its further advised to wash vegetables well, and avoid deli meats, uncooked meats, unpasturized dairy products and soft cheeses. Foods that have a higher risk of carrying Listeria should be avoided too.
