ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES FOR NAUSEA AND VOMITING OF PREGNANCY
Alternative therapies for nausea and vomiting of pregnancy.
TLDR
There is a dearth of research to support or to refute the efficacy of a number of common remedies for nausea and vomiting of pregnancy; the best-studied alternative remedy is acupressure, which may afford relief to many women; ginger and vitamin B6 also may be beneficial.
Maternal Influences on Nausea and Vomiting in Early Pregnancy
TLDR
Maternal age, race/ethnicity, and gravidity were associated with delayed onset and symptoms that persisted into the second trimester, and NVP symptoms for multigravidae were more likely to last beyond the first trimester with each additional pregnancy.

Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy: maternal characteristics and risk factors.
TLDR
The finding that the number of prior pregnancies, both complete and incomplete, and number of fetuses independently appear to increase the risk of NVP suggests a fetal 'dose' effect, together with selected demographic characteristics that differentiate early- vs. late-onset NVP, warrant further investigation.
