Pregnancy is such an exciting time, but it doesn't come without its woes; constipation, swelling, insomnia and of course, the always dreaded, morning sickness. Women suffering from morning sickness often feel completely helpless and at the mercy of their constant nausea. I mean, no matter what you or your partner do in an effort to combat every unrelenting wave of queasiness, you're headed for the bathroom. Still, there are ways to help moms suffering from morning sickness that every grown-ass man should be willing to do; things that, while probably incapable of actually "curing" morning sickness, will at least make the overall situation a little less awful.
Pregnancy is tough on a woman's body, in a way that no one could every possibly comprehend unless they've been through it before. If you're a cisgender male who cannot or has not experienced gestation and the seemingly endless side effects, you can feel helpless to understand, sympathize and even assist your pregnant partner as they go through their trimesters. I mean, you really have no clue what it feels like to have your body hijacked by another person. This is especially true when your pregnant partner is suffering from morning sickness, because when the nausea hits, all bets are off and she really has no control over what her body does at that point. It's super fun and awesome (insert sarcastic eye-roll here), and it can make you hate being pregnant.
Though there are plenty of morning sickness remedies and foods that combat nausea during pregnancy to help sooth your morning sickness, one of your best aids during such an uncomfortable time really and truly is, your partner. So, if your partner is a grown-ass man who wants to know how he can help, make sure he takes notes on the following nine ways he can make your morning sickness somewhat manageable.
