Description

Nausea and vomiting during pregnancy affects 78% to 89% of women and is considered to be normal. Nausea and vomiting during pregnancy starts during the first trimester in 99% of affected women. Traumatic or negative experiences associated with previous pregnancies can cause nausea and vomiting in pregnancies, leading to negative affect and anticipation. Controlling the psychological distress of hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) cases can help to relieve nausea and vomiting. The processing of the traumatic memory with the standard eye movement desensitization and reprocessing protocol (EMDR) provides relief for the mother. The EMDR HG Protocol allows rapid treatment for nausea and vomiting in pregnant women by targeting these triggers. Although many patients with excessive nausea and vomiting or HG are treated in hospitals, some do not respond to medical treatments, and in some cases, the symptoms persist throughout pregnancy. It causes severe distress for women and their fetuses. This chapter describes possible interactions between trauma, previous adverse pregnancy experiences, triggers, and nausea and vomiting in pregnancy (NVP). The EMDR therapy, NVP and HG Protocol, is a quick and effective intervention in the treatment of excessive nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. EMDR therapy can help women have more comfortable pregnancies.
