Drink Morning Mama
The mama, of mama tea, created morning mama with nausea and morning sickness in mind. She worked with a master tea blender and a medical herbalist to blend a gentle and delicate ginger and chamomile tea. The tea is a blend of ginger, chamomile, lemon balm, lemon peel and orange peel. Ginger, chamomile and lemon balm are all used to combat vomiting and in eastern traditions orange peel is used for morning sickness. Even better is that, as well as being a blend of herbs with lovely properties, it tastes great and can be enjoyed any time of the day.

Eat Small Frequent Meals
Despite any urges to stay away from food for fear of nausea and sickness, doctors recommend that you eat regularly and drink fluids to prevent dehydration. Even when you’re feeling delicate a little bland food is thought to help ease the nausea rather than aggravate it, stay away from foods that make you cringe and eat your comfort foods. It is generally thought that fried and fatty foods are not a good idea and are more likely to aggravate than settle the stomach but listen to your body as we’re all different.
