Help with feelings about pregnancy and morning sickness

Reports earlier this year said Kate Middleton may have turned to the help of hypnotherapy for dealing with her feelings about food after severe morning sickness meant she became dehydrated and was hospitalised. Only in the worst cases do GP's suggest medication might be used. A trip to hospital is only involved only when the impacts of the sickness present a potential risk to the mother or her unborn child.

What help can a mother find to deal with how she is feeling (alongside the main medical care on offer for her and her baby's physical safety)?
Asking for help from those close is a good idea, particularly if you have another child and are finding yourself under pressure to continue with everyday tasks. Finding a way to distract your mind from worries about the pregnancy or the morning sickness are also useful. Another way is gaining support through the benefits of hypnosis during the first trimester. Learning self hypnosis techniques as well as finding a practitioner to help with maintaining a positive focus and getting through those early symptoms. Hypnosis should always complement the main care on offer through the NHS. See the NHS website link here on morning sickness/nausea in pregnancy and how to help yourself or if someone you know is feeling the effects. Suggestions include foods and drinks to avoid and other steps you can take to help yourself and seek support from those close to you.
