For some women, pregnancy can bring a myriad of distressing symptoms. Nausea affects up to 85% of women during early pregnancy and about half of these women also experience vomiting. For some women, it can be very debilitating. Conventional anti-emetics bring with them a risk of potential teratogenic effects during the critical stage of early pregnancy. Women tend to feel more comfortable taking a natural or herbal substance to help manage these issues.
