Natural ways to deal with morning sickness during pregnancy

Morning sickness is the nauseous feeling commonly experienced during the first trimester. It usually starts in the morning and wears off as you become active throughout your day. Symptoms of morning sickness typically begin four to eight weeks after conception and begin to fade as your first trimester winds down, although it’s not entirely uncommon to feel queasy throughout your entire pregnancy.

Being repelled by certain tastes and smells is common, even by foods that normally appeal to you. Don't be afraid to follow your intuition, as ignoring an aversion could just make you feel worse.

Natural Remedies for Morning Sickness

Sniff a Fresh Scent

When you can't open a window or walk away, try sniffing fresh scents. Carry a bottle of lemon extract or a sprig of fresh rosemary in your bag, and stealthily sneak a sniff when needed.

Eat according to mood

If you are feeling very sick, try not to worry about eating a balanced diet at this stage. You and your baby can catch up on nutrients later in your pregnancy when your nausea should have subsided. Most importantly, keep well-hydrated. Sip iced water, lemon juice, barley water, or whatever you can manage.

Try herbal tea

Nothing beats morning sickness like a cup of ginger tea. The same spicy herb is used to counter motion sickness. To make ginger tea, boil 30 grams dried root (available in health-food stores) in 1 cup water for 15 to 20 minutes, strain, and sip. Herbal teas made with lemon balm, and peppermint is also known to reduce nausea. Use 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried herb per cup of hot water. Avoid peppermint tea if you have heartburn, however.

Keep things your side


Some women reportedly feel good when they wake up and immediately eat a small snack. Keep some biscuits next to your bed, so that you can reach out to them as soon as you wake up.

Small, frequent meals

The drops in blood sugar or low blood sugar are big triggers. So instead of having three meals a day, aim for six mini-meals no more than three hours apart and always carry a snack with you. Be sure to include both carbohydrates and protein, which will help stabilize your blood sugar.
