Morning Sickness or NVP: National Survey of Nurse Practitioners Points to Underreporting of Common Condition in Pregnancy
Date:2/27/2012

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy (NVP) is the most common medical condition in pregnancy, affecting an estimated 70 to 85% of all pregnant women.(1) Yet in a recent national survey of more than 350 nurse practitioners (NPs), only 40% of their patients reported experiencing NVP in the last 12 months, pointing to the need for greater patient and healthcare provider dialogue about the condition.

"Women experiencing NVP should discuss appropriate treatment strategies with their healthcare provider and not suffer in silence."
