Tips to reduce morning sickness/ Postpartum care in Altadena

Unfortunately, as many as 70% of new mothers experience morning sickness. While uncomfortable and sometimes downright awful, it is a natural response and usually does not affect the baby. A-1 Home Care investigates:

At times, morning sickness can be mild. However, the pregnant mother may at other times feel so nauseous that she will vomit. Even though morning sickness can be extremely unpleasant, it is hardly ever severe enough to cause metabolic derangement. In most cases, morning sickness settles down by the end of the first trimester.

We encourage you to follow the time and tested tips posted below:

1. Get enough rest: Morning sickness and nausea is exacerbated by fatigue. 

2. Get up slowly: Don't be in a hurry to get out of bed when you wake up. Take your time.

3. Avoid some types of foods: Avoid fatty and/or spicy foods. Avoid caffeine as well.

4. Food portion sizes - have small ones: While it is good to have some food in the stomach, it's not ideal to be overful, as it contributes to more nausea.
