Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy (Vitamin B6)

How can My Natal Care help you when you are experiencing Nausea and Vomiting during the first timester of pregnancy. Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride. My Natal Care understands that nausea and vomiting during the 1st trimester of pregnancy are symptoms commonly referred to as "morning sickness," and although this is a good sign, it can impact you psychologically and physically and can occur at any time of the day, and sometimes all day!

The exact cause of morning sickness is not yet fully understood, but it is believed to be related to the hormonal changes that occur during early pregnancy. Specifically, the hormone beta human chorionic gonadotropin (BhCG), which is produced by the growing placenta. In addition to BhCG, other hormones such as oestrogen and progesterone also increase during early pregnancy, which can contribute to the symptoms of nausea and vomiting. My Natal Care understands that these hormones can affect the digestive system, causing food to move more slowly through the intestines and increasing the likelihood of nausea. Other factors that may contribute to morning sickness include stress, fatigues and a sensitive sense of smell or taste. Some women may also be more prone to morning sickness if they have a history of motion sickness or if they are carrying a multiple pregnancy.

In most cases, the symptoms will improve on their own by the end of the first trimester. However, if the nausea is severe or accompanied by other symptoms such as dehydration, it is important to speak with a healthcare provider.

My Natal Care is here for you. Although there is insufficient evidence to detect clinical benefits from Vitamin B6 in pregnancy, it benefits in reducing nausea during the 1st trimester. The My Natal Care Preconception and 1st trimester essentials include vitamin B6 in conjunction with Zingiber Officinale rhizome extract (Ginger) to assist with tackling the challenges of nausea and vomitting.
