Expecting Moms & Combating Morning Sickness
Expecting your first child can be extremely exciting and also down right scary. You learn a lot of new things – either by trial and error, or by word of mouth. It’s a new experience that brings a lot of new issues and questions in regards to your health and well-being. Don’t eat sushi, stay away from cold cut meats, take your vitamins … the suggestions go on and on. This blog will explore some options to help with morning sickness – a condition that plagues about 85% of expecting mothers. AllStarHealth.com carries many products for mothers-to-be from brands such as Earth Mama, Weleda Baby, Alaffia for Babies , and other useful baby products.
Ginger: Nonstop nausea that can last all day and happens every day is not fun. One of the best products I found that worked was ginger. I survived my first pregnancy with ginger gum and it provided instant relief. Ginger chews are also popular and mimic what sailors did for sea sickness – they chewed on pieces of ginger. These taste much better than ginger root! Ginger is natural and safe to use.
Tea: Earth Mama Morning Wellness Tea is a delicious tea to drink in the mornings to help with sickness (it’s got that magic ingredient ginger in it). This tea will help comfort and calm you. If you’re not a fan of gum or chews, this is a great alternative and makes a nice replacement for coffee. You can drink it cold or hot.
Wrist Bands: Yeah… I thought it was weird too – but I’m open to trying anything when I’m desperate for relief. Sea-Band Acupressure Wrist Bands look like something you’d wear to the gym, but they actually work by using acupressure. They’re often used for travel and motion sickness and have helped some with their nausea from morning sickness.
Sour Candy: I’m not quite sure what the science is behind it, but a lot of women will tell you sour candy helped them handle their bouts of nausea. Give Three Lollies Preggie Pop Drops a try. You can try the regular or the plus version that has B6 added to it!
Hopefully some of these methods will help you and you won’t be forced to live off crackers and ginger ale. Make sure you’re eating and staying hydrated despite how difficult it might be. If you experience extreme symptoms make sure to discuss it with your health provider.
