Doctor :   Hi, Thanks for the query. I understand your concern. According to manufacturers ginger gum helps in relieving na usea and it is safe in pregnancy. There are no sufficient well controlled studies regarding the safety of this medicine during pregnancy and also no severe adverse effects reported. So, you may follow your pharmacist advice.
