Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy

Nausea and vomiting are common symptoms in pregnancy for many women. The following factsheets give advice written by dietitians about how best to manage your symptoms and maintain hydration. Sometimes the vomiting can be more prolonged and severe. This is called hyperemesis. It is important to seek advice from your GP or midwife if your nausea and vomiting is making it difficult for you to keep up your fluid intake. They may prescribe you appropriate medication. If you are particularly dehydrated, they may arrange for you to attend either the 24-hour clinic or hospital for you to have intravenous fluid and to bring your symptoms under control.
