Our recommendations are based on the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) Green-top Guideline No. 69 for the treatment of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy and hyperemesis gravidarum. We have combined this with recommendations from local clinicians, most notably the recommendations made in O&G Magazine by Associate Professor Sandra Lowe Consultant Obstetric Physician at the Royal Hospital for Women and Conjoint Associate Professor at the University of NSW. We’ve also referred to state based protocols as follows:
