Morning Sickness (NVP) - The facts
 
Morning sickness treatment NVP (Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy), also known as morning sickness is a condition experienced during pregnancy that affects over 50% of mothers. Mothers can feel nauseous, tired and sometimes vomit. Morning sickness usually occurs in the early hours of the morning and often improves gradually throughout the day. 
 
 

 

Despite this, some experts state that the term is a misnomer as it can be triggered at any time of the day. The severity of the symptoms varies in different people; however nausea can be mild or severe enough to cause vomiting.

Complications can occur when the symptoms become so severe that the woman suffers from dehydration, weight loss, alkalosis and hypokalemia. This condition is called hyperemesis gravidarum and occurs in approximately 1% of all pregnancies. Around 28% of women experience nausea without vomiting, according to the National Health Service (NHS).

If you have concerns about your morning sickness, speak to your GP.
