Interventions for treating severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy (hyperemesis gravidarum)

Although severe nausea and vomiting in pregnancy (hyperemesis gravidarum) rarely causes death, it is an important cause of ill health with emotional, physical, and economic consequences. Women may need hospital treatment and may not be able to work and it occasionally causes pregnancy complications and adverse outcomes for babies such as low birthweight. Many pharmaceutical, complementary, and alternative therapies are available and the objective of this review was to examine the effectiveness and safety of interventions for hyperemesis gravidarum.
