Morning sickness – the struggle is real!
Morning sickness affects about 75% of pregnant women and can make it difficult to swallow pregnancy tablets. If you are suffering with nausea and vomiting, despite your best intentions, you may find it difficult to meet your nutritional needs from diet alone.
New guidelines from the Society of Obstetric Medicine of Australia and New Zealand (SOMANZ) recommend that pregnant women suffering from nausea and vomiting, discontinue multivitamin supplements containing excessive amounts of Iron (30-99mg/day), but should continue to supplement their daily intake with Folic Acid and Iodine.
