First Trimester - Morning Sickness
Alleviate your morning sickness without the risk that accompanies anti-nausea drugs
Almost 80% of pregnant women experience nausea and/or vomiting during the first trimester of pregnancy. These symptoms are often worst in the mornings but can occur at any time of the day.
Morning sickness is usually at its worst between weeks 6 and 12, though nausea and vomiting can be a problem at any stage of pregnancy. The exact cause of morning sickness is not known for sure, though it seems to be linked mostly to the hormonal changes of pregnancy as well as an oversensitive sense of smell.
How is Morning Sickness Usually Treated?
There are many home remedies and methods for reducing nausea and vomiting during pregnancy that have been passed on through generations and different approaches will help different women. Some of the best, time-tested methods are listed at the bottom of this page.
Of course, due to the possibility of side-effects and tragic past experiences with drugs like Thalidomide, medications are always best avoided during pregnancy. There are several anti-nausea medications commonly used for morning sickness which are available either over the counter or by prescription.
Although the medications in general use are those found to have a low risk of affecting the fetus, no drugs are without risk. Side-effects like drowsiness are also common as many of these medications include antihistamines inthe formulation.
What are Good Morning Mama Granules?
Good Morning Mama Granules are a 100% natural herbal and homeopathic remedy for all digestive disturbances experienced during pregnancy, especially nausea and vomiting.
This remedy is completely safe to use during pregnancy and is a very effective alternative to the OTC and prescription medications used for morning sickness which bring with them the risk of side-effects as well as adverse effects on the growth and development of your unborn child.
Mentha Piperita is a calmative and analgesic herb which aids digestion, prevents nausea and vomiting and promotes the flow of bile.

Caution: If you have severe vomiting and haven't been able to keep anything, including fluids, down for 24 hours or more you may be suffering from a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum. As a precaution, it is therefore important to consult your health care practitioner to avoid becoming seriously dehydrated.
You will experience almost instant relief from your symptoms when you take this remedy. Should the nausea return, simply sprinkle another pinch onto your tongue.
How long will a bottle last?
Depending on frequency of use, your bottle of Good Morning Mama Granules should last 2 - 3 weeks.
"I had heard about Good Morning Mama Granules from a friend and I stocked up on these when I found out that I was pregnant for the first time. I have always had a sensitive stomach and expected to have a hard time with morning sickness. Not only did I breeze through my first trimester with an excellent appetite, but when I woke up during the night feeling a bit queasy I just popped some of the granules onto my tongue and felt the soothing effects within minutes. Thanks NaturalEco for your great product!" Leanne, mom-to-be
"When I was pregnant with my first two kids I suffered from horrendous nausea that occurred at all hours of the day and night! I could not go near certain foods that I'd always eaten and enjoyed before, and the smell of meat made me run for the bathroom. Luckily I found your site shortly after I got pregnant the third time around and ordered some of your Good Morning Mama Granules. I was so impressed at how effective and fast-acting they were!!!! I kept a bottle with me wherever I went and was able to enjoy a much more pleasant pregnancy and also eat a more balanced diet than I had been able to with my other pregnancies. I love all your pregnancy products and now that my little one has been born I've been eagerly browsing through your baby products!" Tania, Il
What else can help?
1. Avoid foods or smells that trigger your nausea. You may only feel like very bland foods, mostly carbohydrates, and it is fine to stick to these when you are feeling unwell. Each person is different and you will learn what triggers your nausea.
2. If the smell of cigarettes makes you feel nauseous, speak to your partner, family, friends or work colleagues about this and ask them to be considerate. Don't be afraid of telling them what you need! Second-hand cigarette smoke is not good for anyone, especially for pregnant women and their unborn babies.
3. Keep crackers or a similar plain snack handy for those times when you feel overwhelmed by nausea. An empty stomach is often a trigger for these unpleasant moments.
4. Eat little and often to keep your blood sugar stable and to avoid an empty stomach.
5. Keep away from rich, fatty or highly-spiced foods as much as possible. It is best to stick to a balanced diet of wholesome and unprocessed foods.
