The day after I found out I was pregnant with Joaquín the morning sickness — or all day sickness in my case — kicked in. Every day it seemed to get worse and worse. I kept telling myself it would pass after the first trimester, however I was one of the unfortunate that had it every single day for the entire pregnancy. Do you know what else kicked in? Motion sickness! Until my pregnancy, I had never experienced it before (minus a few times on boats after scuba diving excursions). While my morning sickness finally went away after having my son, the motion sickness never did. As a travel photojournalist, this has definitely impeded my life, therefore I was incredibly grateful to have discovered Reliefband.
Reliefband uses patented, clinically-proven, FDA-cleared technology to treat motion sickness often associated with riding in boats, cars, planes, and more. It also treats morning sickness, as well as side effects from chemotherapy and surgery. For some people this may seem like a luxury to have “just in case”, but if you are like me and get nauseous easily — this drug-free wearable device is life changing!
Its unique neuromodulation technology was developed for use in hospitals and alters nerve activity through targeted delivery of gentle pulses to the underside of the wrist to turn off feelings of nausea, retching, and vomiting. It works quickly and without side effects. Trust me when I say it is a game changer.
It comes in two colors: blue or charcoal. I went with the latter, as it matches my wardrobe better. I have to say for a medical device, it sure looks sleek! My Reliefband goes with me everywhere now. Either I am wearing it or it is in my purse for when it potentially needs to be worn. I highly recommend it for everyone, but especially for moms-to-be and fellow travelers.
