A woman who is in the first trimester of pregnancy has been experiencing severe morning sickness. She asks, “I’ve heard that ginger tablets may be a natural way to ease the nausea and vomiting. Is it okay to try them?” What is the nurse’s best response?


▸ “They are a safe and natural remedy for nausea when you are pregnant.”

▸ “Go ahead and try them, but stop taking them once the nausea is relieved.”

▸ “Some health care providers do not recommend ginger during pregnancy. Let’s check with your provider.”

▸ “You will need to wait until after the first trimester to try them.”

“Some health care providers do not recommend ginger during pregnancy. Let’s check with your provider.”
