 Pregnancy Afloat

"Perhaps the biggest fear facing a pregnant woman, who is contemplating a cruise, is the "seasick issue". Taking conventional seasick pills, or patch-type motion sickness remedies, is not an option since these drugs can cross over the placenta to the unborn baby. There are some natural remedies that may work. For example, ginger or ginger ale. Certain foods might soothe a nauseous stomach, while other foods, such as spicy dishes, might aggravate it. For each person this varies greatly, just as seasickness in general varies from person to person. I was fortunate because I was never bothered by seasickness or morning sickness while pregnant."
