Ginger helps reduce mild morning sickness for women

giner root tea

Taking ginger or using acupressure on the wrist may help some women with mild morning sickness, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) says.

Its guidance suggests these therapies could offer alternatives to women who want to avoid medication.

But it says anti-sickness drugs and hospital treatment are important in more severe cases.

The recommendations are in line with advice from NHS watchdog NICE.

Nausea and vomiting affects about 80% of pregnant women.
