Morning sickness: few options for successful treatment

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Bad news for pregnant women suffering from morning sickness.

A new review of research finds virtually no evidence that any available treatments are safe and effective at reducing the vomiting and nausea that usually occurs in early pregnancy.

Most of the studies in this review looked at alternative therapies, like acupuncture.

There were no significant differences between women undergoing acupuncture and acupressure and women in a control group.

There was also limited evidence that medications and supplements like ginger and vitamin B-6 helped.
