How can I prevent sick stomach (nausea)?
Although it is often called 'morning sickness', during pregnancy you may feel sick to your stomach at any time during the day or even all day long. It usually goes away by the end of the 3rd or 4th month.
What to do to prevent it:
- Drink a cup of ginger or cinnamon tea 2 or 3 times a day, before meals.
- Eat small meals often, and avoid foods that are oily or hard to digest.
- Lick a lemon.
- Ask the midwives in your community for good local plant medicines or remedies.
- To help with morning sickness, try eating a biscuit, a tortilla, a piece of bread, a chapati, or a little rice or porridge when you wake up in the morning.
