Managing Severe Morning Sickness - with a Vommat!

Managing Severe Morning Sickness - with a Vommat!

What's one of the most recognized symptoms of early pregnancy? Morning sickness. It's... the worst. Some women get through the first trimester unscathed while others are sentenced to endless hours of feeling like absolute trash. If you're among those dealing with not only severe nausea but also vomiting, I've got something that may help a little. It's not going to make you feel *better* but maybe it'll just make it a little easier to deal with as you tick off the days til that magical second trimester starts. 

Understanding Morning Sickness: Morning sickness is a common symptom of pregnancy, affecting up to 70-80% of expectant mothers. Despite its name, it can strike at any time of the day. The exact cause of morning sickness is not fully understood, but hormonal changes and increased sensitivity to certain smells are believed to contribute. I remember there was a while with all of my kids where it felt like the only thing appetizing, the only thing I could possibly eat, was McDonald's. I'd literally be at Whole Foods and then leave to stop at McD's on my way home. But I digress. 

Managing Morning Sickness: While morning sickness is a natural part of pregnancy for many, finding ways to cope with severe symptoms is crucial. Traditional remedies such as ginger, acupressure wristbands, and small, frequent meals can offer relief for some. However, for those dealing with more severe nausea, additional solutions may be necessary. Talk with your doctor as they may be able to prescribe medication for the really really serious cases. 

But what if you're still yakking all the time? Are you tired of being on the floor in your bathroom? Then read on!

Introducing Vommat – an innovative new product designed to provide comfort and convenience for pregnant women experiencing severe morning sickness. The Vommat is a 4 ft by 4 ft eco-friendly disposable sheet made from sustainable materials. Here's why it's a game-changer:

  1. Portability and Convenience: you can take one anywhere you go, providing a discreet and convenient solution for unexpected bouts of morning sickness. Slip it into your bag, and you're ready for any situation. 

  2. Highly Absorbent: The Vommat is crafted from highly absorbent materials, ensuring that it effectively contains and manages vomit. It also helps absorb odors. This feature is especially valuable for those moments when finding a bathroom may not be an immediate option.

  3. Eco-Friendly Design: Vommats are made from eco-friendly and sustainable materials, minimizing their environmental footprint. They're biodegradable, too. 

  4. Leak-Proof Assurance: Rest easy knowing that the Vommat's design prevents any leakage, keeping your surroundings clean and sanitary. This peace of mind is invaluable for maintaining your daily routine without added stress.

So instead of laying on the floor in the bathroom you can lay on the floor in your bedroom or living room. Kidding, kind of. If that makes you comfortable, go for it. But the point is that Vommats are large enough to protect wherever you are so you can let it rip wherever you're laying and it will be contained. One other great thing about Vommats is if you don't use them all... just hang on to them until that baby gets here. You can then use them to manage spit up, diaper changes, then vomiting and potty training down the road. Motherhood is glorious!!!

Order your Vommats today and experience a slightly better rough first trimester. Sending you good vibes to feel better soon!! 😘
