Natural remedies for morning sickness

Nothing can dampen the excitement of pregnancy like morning sickness.
The name, however, is very misleading as morning sickness can happen at any time during the day or night. It is most common during the first trimester, but for some women morning sickness lingers throughout pregnancy.

Strap Your Baby

With the winter school holiday season here, the Motor Industry Workshop Association (MIWA) urges parents to invest in car seats for their children and to strap them in when on the road.

Vishal Premlall, director of MIWA, pointed out to parents that if you have a collision at 50kph with a baby on your lap, the child will be hurled through the windscreen with an impact similar to that of falling from a three-storey window or being hit by a 3.5 tonne elephant.

Alternatively the child will be crushed against the dashboard by the force of your body weight which is 30 times heavier at the moment of impact.

“The fact is that it is against the law not to strap your child in. According to the 22nd National Road Traffic Amendment published in May 2015, children under the age of three are required to be strapped into a car seat. Besides the threat of a fine, should a driver be caught with a child not buckled in, the reality of what can happen to a child in the event of an accident should motivate drivers to do the right thing,” he said.

Over and above that the majority of brain damage cases in children under the age of five are directly related to injuries sustained during car accidents.
