The Best Herbal Teas for Morning Sickness 

Exhaustion, bloating, and a queasy tummy are all normal during the first trimester of pregnancy – and often beyond. Get some relief with our list of the best herbal teas for morning sickness. 

 

Morning sickness is, sadly, a common part of early pregnancy, with 70-80% of pregnant women experiencing nausea and vomiting during the first trimester. For many, symptoms will peak at around nine weeks and start to ease as you get past the 12-week mark – but others will find the nausea continues into the second trimester, or even beyond. 

While the excitement of growing a new life may help you to weather the worst of the sickness, it is hard to manage day-to-day life when you are constantly nauseous and exhausted. So, we’ve compiled this list of the best herbal teas for morning sickness to help you out. 

 

  1. Ginger

The most popular herbal tea for morning sickness is ginger, which is even recommended by the NHS to alleviate nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.  

Ginger has other benefits during pregnancy too. It supports digestion, is a natural painkiller, and can boost your immune system too. 

 

  1. Peppermint

Another popular herbal tea for morning sickness is peppermint. This fresh-tasting herb is said to alleviate nausea and is often used to ease other digestive issues too, such as gas and bloating. 

 

  1. Shatavari

Known as “the Queen of Herbs,” shatavari is a favourite in ayurvedic medicine for all things to do with the female reproductive system. Used throughout pregnancy and lactation, as well as in day-to-day life, shatavari is said to regulate your hormones and support general reproductive health. 

Shatavari root is also a source of many nutrients, including vitamin B6, which helps to reduce nausea and morning sickness. 

 

  1. Chamomile

Known for its soothing properties, chamomile tea is a popular option for helping you feel calmer and better rested during pregnancy. And it may also help to relieve the symptoms of morning sickness. 

Chamomile is often used for digestive support, including reducing nausea and vomiting. The World Health Organisation recommends it for relieving morning sickness in early pregnancy, along with ginger and vitamin B6. 

 

  1. Oat Straw

Like chamomile, oat straw is often found in herbal tea blends aimed at calming the nervous system and relieving anxiety. During the stresses and strains of pregnancy, this can be a definite bonus. Packed with calcium and magnesium, oat straw is also said to support the digestion and reduce morning sickness. 

 

NutraPreg 

We use all five of these supportive herbs to make our NutraPreg herbal tea, which is designed to support women through pregnancy. It also contains nettle, cranberry, and rooibos to make a tasty and relaxing herbal tea blend.
