Talking to your healthcare professional

You are not alone. Morning sickness can affect up to 85% of pregnant women.1 Sadly, many women are reluctant to discuss their morning sickness with their healthcare professional because they feel embarrassed, or think it's not a serious issue, that it's normal, or they should just grin and bear it.

Whatever the reason, it's important to tell your healthcare professional about your symptoms, no matter what trimester you're in. Your healthcare professional can discuss how to manage your symptoms and which treatment could be right for you.
