How to Overcome Nausea and Vomiting (Morning Sickness) During Pregnancy

Is morning sickness dangerous?

Even so, for those of you who experience morning sickness with normal conditions and being able to handle it, it is not considered dangerous, but if you experience morning sickness with some severe symptoms, the cause is not only influenced by pregnancy hormones but by the presence of hyperemesis gravidarium syndrome. For those of you, the symptoms of abnormal morning sickness are usually characterized by not being able to accept food and nausea when you consume water so you are more easily dehydrated coupled with negative thoughts about food and not having a certain food desire (cravings). Consult a gynecologist immediately to overcome it.
