Many morning sickness treatments are all natural to protect the mother and unborn baby. If nausea and vomiting become too extreme, physicians will sometimes use over-the-counter or prescription medications. Most doctors will recommend that morning sickness treatment begin with things the mother can do at home that do not involve medications.

Some pregnant women find that eating several small meals or snacks each day versus eating large amounts of food helps to control nausea. You may also want to try eating a small snack when getting up in the morning or going to bed at night. Carbonated drinks can sometimes help with an upset stomach and typically pose no threat to you or your baby.

Sometimes the best morning sickness treatment can be to avoid the things that make nausea worse. For many women, becoming overheated can induce nausea. You may want to keep track of any foods, smells, or activities that make your morning sickness worse. Continuous motion can often lead to nausea for pregnant women. A simple change such as riding in the front seat of the car instead of the back can help with morning sickness. Be sure to note anything that improves those bad feelings.

A natural morning sickness treatment that many doctors will suggest is vitamin B6. Some medical studies have reported that vitamin B6 helps ease morning sickness in pregnant women. Your doctor can recommend the appropriate dose for you and how often you should take it. You should never take vitamin B6 without the consent of your physician, as your prenatal vitamins may already contain one dose.

Ginger is a natural root that many women use to help with nausea during pregnancy. This morning sickness treatment comes in many different forms. It can be bought in a candy or lollipop form or as fresh grated ginger for making tea. You may also be able to find real ginger ale, which could help because it contains ginger and has carbonation. Ginger can also come in the form of capsules, but you should consult your doctor before taking them.

There are some over-the-counter medications that could work for severe morning sickness treatment, but many of the anti-nausea pills are prescription only. Severe morning sickness is nausea and vomiting that could lead to dehydration.
