Acupuncture Reduces Morning Sickness in Pregnancy

Double-blind, placebo-controlled study. 97 women with mean gestational length completed 8–12 weeks.

Symptoms were recorded according to intensity, duration and nature of complaints. 71% of women in the intervention group reported both less intensive morning sickness and reduced duration of symptoms.

Acupressure wristband might be an alternative therapy for morning sickness in early pregnancy, especially before pharmaceutical treatment is considered.
