Pregnant women should be given anti-sickness drugs

18th April 2011

After information which shows hospital admissions for morning sickness have tripled, doctors have called for pregnant women to be given drugs to help treat the condition.

There were 25,420 hospital admissions for morning sickness in 2006/07 – the last year for which data was available – compared with 8,637 in 1989/90. Nearly a third of women suffer from serious nausea, but many say their GP did not take the problem seriously, according to doctors who wrote about the condition in a journal published by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
