  • ok nothing is "safe" besides tylenol during pregnancy but dramamine is in the next safest pregnancy group so its just as "safe" as any prescription anti-nausa meds. I took it for weeks with my first son (before I got put on anti-nausea prescription meds) and he turned out fine. And BTW... my midwife knew that I was taking it

  • I don't think so. If it was safe why wouldn't they have recommended it when I told them I needed something for nausea?

  • It's pregnancy catagory B, which means that it is safe to take. However, you should call your doctor/midwife to make sure they know and okay it before you take that or any other medication while pregnant.

  • My doctor recommended it for dizziness. I would go ahead and give your doctor a call just in case, but it should be fine.

  • Ginger is good for nausea and peppermint oil as well. Both are natural and VERY safe for pregnancy.
