Abstract

For many women, the most difficult part of pregnancy is the feeling of nausea that frequently accompanies it. The prevailing view is that this is something that women 'just have to put up with'.Traditionally, more severe cases of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy have been managed within a medical model. This article reviews the social and psychological impact of nausea and vomiting. Pregnancy
sickness has significant detrimental effects on the
psychological and social well-being of women and their families and arguably is best supported using a psycho-social approach.
