Morning Sickness

Up to 80% of pregnant women suffer from morning sickness during pregnancy. For most women, nausea and vomiting starts after 6-7 weeks of pregnancy, peaking during weeks 9-10. During morning sickness, you may experience anything from a feeling of queasiness with a loss of appetite to intense vomiting to the point of dehydration. Nausea and vomiting during pregnancy usually pass by week 14.

However, around 1% of women who are pregnant experience hyperemesis gravidarum, which involves severe vomiting, weight loss and dehydration.

Acupuncture treatments 1-2 times a week have been shown to alleviate nausea and vomiting associated with morning sickness.
