Morning sickness is simply the nausea and vomiting many women have especially within the first few weeks or months of their pregnancy.
Morning sickness may affect up to 75% of pregnant women and can last anywhere between 6 and 14 weeks, with a small number of mamas experiencing it throughout the entire pregnancy. Morning sickness isn’t exclusive to the morning; it can be experienced any time during the day as well as all day long.
HOW TO REDUCE MORNING SICKNESS DURING PREGNANCY WITH BITTER KOLA
The question is, can morning sickness be reduced or can you manage it? The answer is “YES”. However, what works for one woman may not work for another.
During our research, one husband told us, “My wife was carrying twin-pregnancy and her morning sickness was severe” he continued, “she tried everything from puttin ginger in her mouth and other things, but not until she started eating bitter kola did the morning sickness stop!”
Bitter kola worked for that woman to stop her excessive spitting and vomiting, but it may not work for another woman. In fact it may worsen it. One truth about reducing morning sickness in pregnancy is to avoid what TRIGGERS your own morning sickness.
Thankfully there are multiple ways to find relief with the following remedies:
✨ Frequent, smaller portion meals and snacks.
✨ Keep your blood sugar level and stomach a little full—6 mini-meals is ideal—can be really helpful.
✨ Salty crackers, high-protein snacks such as peanut butter, yoghurt or chia pudding.
✨ Herbal teas such as camomile tea
✨ Acupuncture for hormone balancing. Find what works for you and if in doubt, ask your midwife or doctor if you are worried about your nutrition and hydration during this time.
✨Be gentle with yourself. Experiencing pregnancy-induced nausea can really impact your life and make you feel quite low and alone.
