Friday, September 26th, 2008

Does morning sickness have you down? Do you know someone who is experiencing morning sickness?

If so, take a look at this month’s Ask the Doctor post entitled “Pass the Ginger Ale”.

It is estimated that approximately 75% of women experience nausea or vomiting during pregnancy. In fact, nausea and vomiting are the most common symptoms experienced in the first trimester of pregnancy. Although it usually is limited to the first trimester of pregnancy, nausea and/or vomiting can unfortunately persist for the entire duration of pregnancy.

Dr. Sal Maya gives you tips on how to overcome the morning sickness blues. Check out his post here.

Each month, the Bumble Collection will feature “Ask the Doctors”, a forum hosted by Dr. Sal Maya where medical-related questions submitted by visitors to the website will be answered by respective medical leaders in that field. Each month Dr. Maya will invite a different medical specialist to help answer submitted questions by visitors to the website.

Questions can range from any medical specialty including fertility medicine, childbirth and labor, infant health or pediatrics. Questions and answers will be posted monthly on the website.

I’ve always heard about epidurals, but I’m not really sure if it’s for me. What can you tell me about them? – Christine H.
