Clinical Question:
Is ginger an option for nausea and vomiting of pregnancy?

Bottom Line:
In the first trimester^ at best^ ginger may improve nausea and vomiting -4 on a 40 point-scale or stop vomiting for one in three women at six days. Safety in the largest cohort study suggests no increase in fetal malformations or stillbirths^ although smaller studies found trends suggesting otherwise.
