Abstract [en]

Nausea during pregnancy affects about ten percent of all pregnant women. The causes of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy are unclear. The condition can lead to dehydration, electrolyte derangement, impaired organ function and lead to serious health issues or even death if left untreated. The treatment conducted today is symptomatic and is not completely satisfactory.

Objective: The purpose of the study was to describe women’s experience of morning sickness and their experience of support.

Design: Data was collected through a semi-structured questionnaire and analyzed by qualitative content analysis.

Participants: Nine women responded to the survey.

Results: The result shows that women who suffer from morning sickness during pregnancy feel a loss of control over their lives which has a significant impact on their mental and physical health making it difficult to function normally. Feelings of isolation, loneliness and alien- ation are common. It is essential that midwives are attentive in order to provide the help and support that these women require.

Conclusion: It is essential that the personnel providing the care are knowledgeable about the condition. More research is necessary to find the root cause of the condition in order to develop effective strategies for treatment.
