One of the worst things about both of my pregnancies was the morning sickness. Mine wasn’t nearly as bad as some people’s, but feeling awful when you first wake up is not a fun way to start the day! Some women have a much worse time with it than I did. Moms Meet offered to send Sea-Band Mama! To me to check out.
I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.
Sea-Band uses acupressure to help relieve morning sickness symptoms by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist. They can also be used to help relieve motion sickness, so I’m looking forward to trying these out on a boat one day soon! While I can’t say how it works for morning sickness since I’m not currently pregnant, I can say that an Italian study found that morning sickness was reduced in 70% of women who used the Sea-Band acupressure bands. They are easy to use and wear, so there is no reason not to give them a try!
I know I get motion sickness very easily, so I will be trying these out on our next long car ride or boat trip. I love that they have packs that are well-suited to people who get travel sickness. Also, the bands are resusable and washable. They aren’t very big and come in a small plastic case, so it would be easy to put them in your carry-on or purse when you travel. They also have ginger lozenges, gum, and even an aromatherapy rollette to help you fight your morning or motion sickness. They can also be used by people who are going through chemotherapy – it’s nice for them to have something that can help provide relief without additional side effects!
I was also pleasantly surprised at how inexpensive the bands are. It’s definitely a price point that most people can afford to try out to see if they work for you, and they are a lot less expensive than OTC motion sickness medicine! All of the products are easy to use and easy to take on the go.
Here are some other tips for fighting motion sickness:
- Avoid heavy, spicy, or fatty foods and excessive alcohol while travelling.
- Try to find a seat with the least motion – this is usually towards the center of a boat or plane.
- Face the same direction you are travelling in.
- Do not read.
- Keep your gaze fixed on the horizon or a steady point.
- Get some fresh air.
