Abstract:

Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy remain one of the most persistent and frustrating problems for both expectant mothers and their prenatal care providers. Forty percent or more of women will experience symptoms beyond the first trimester. Evidence for first-line pharmacologic treatments as well as off-label and botanical medicines is discussed, along with efficacy, risks, benefits, and the shared decision-making process in selecting a treatment. Outcomes, prognosis, and treatment of special populations are examined.
