Dealing With Morning Sickness

by Jemma (follow)
Tips to keep both you and baby healthy.

Affecting three in four women, morning sickness is a common symptom of early pregnancy, caused by changes in your hormones. In many cases, it only lasts for the first trimester, but when you're experiencing nausea and vomiting, it can be a challenge to receive the right nutrition for both you and your baby.


Getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals is especially important during the first 12 weeks, so morning sickness is not something you should have to grin and bear! Keep in mind that nausea is perpetuated by an empty stomach, so it's ideal to choose something that will give you that ‘full feeling’ while also delivering nutrients.

Here are our top 3 suggestions to help with your morning sickness:

1. Oz Farm’s Mother Care Nutritional Formula

When you can't stomach a meal, Mother Care Nutritional Formula is a nutritious and delicious vanilla flavoured drink, that's easy to swallow.

It's also a fantastic source of protein and contains key supplements and vitamins to help with energy production and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. For your daily dose, simply mix 6 scoops into 1 cup of water and stir until dissolved. Easy! For more information, see here.

2. Carry a fresh scent around with you

Estrogen is responsible for your sense of smell, so when you're pregnant, it's likely that you will be far more sensitive to the smells around you. For when you can't get away, keep a bottle of lemon or rose water in your bag so you can use it as a barrier when you spray. So simple, yet so effective.

3. Food remedies

You've probably heard of these time and time again, but their versatility means you can try them in different ways to find which one works for you.

Ginger tea
Plain foods such as potatoes, pasta and rice
Mints
Flat soft drink
Ice chips/pops

What tips do you recommend to battle morning sickness?
