Researchers at the Dublin City University in Ireland have carried out a systematic review of morning sickness, nausea, other symptoms associated with pregnancy, and therapies and found none are “safe and effective.”

The study reviewed 27 trials with 4041 pregnant (20 weeks) women to note levels of nausea with the use of treatments like acupuncture, use of ginger, anti-vomiting drugs and vitamin B6.

Anne Matthews, who led the study, says, “Despite the wealth of different treatments available, it’s not possible currently to identify with confidence any safe and effective interventions for nausea and vomiting in early pregnancy.”
