Praying to the porcelain god is a rite of passage for many pregnant women. For those mums-to-be that can't get a break from morning sickness, there are medicinal options available. Many ailing ladies opt not to take such medication for fear of affecting the baby. Researchers conducted a study and found the drug Metoclopramide, also known as Reglan, to be a "safe medication." One of the researchers, Dr. Rafael Gorodischer, claimed:
We studied exposure in the first trimester because that is the most critical period for the development of the fetus, when most malformations would be caused by an external cause. . . . We can now say with a high degree of confidence that it’s a safe medication.
