For more detailed advice
It is not unusual to experience some nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Most women find this has settled by 16-20 weeks. Research has found that taking ginger can help to relieve nausea. Choosing ginger drinks or ginger infused water may help to settle some of your symptoms. Try to avoid the high sugar ginger drinks, unless using them to treat hypoglycaemia.
Having small but regular meals may help to reduce some symptoms of nausea. If strong food smells are causing nausea, keep the windows open while you are cooking or try to avoid the problem food until the nausea settles. It is important to maintain a balanced diet during this time.
It is important to continue with the healthy changes after pregnancy, as this can help to lower your risk of gestational diabetes in future pregnancies and reduce or delay the risk of Type 2 Diabetes later in life.
If you would like any support with making healthy changes after your pregnancy, please discuss this with your midwife at your 6 week post-natal check.
