Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy affect almost 75% of pregnant women. In most cases, nausea, which is ended with or without vomiting, is a mild condition.However, the rest could become hyperemesis gravidarum, in which both mother and fetus are in danger. Non-pharmacological therapy is needed as an alternative or complementary treatment when pharmacological therapy causes side effects in some cases of nausea and vomiting. This systematic review aims to identify non-pharmacological therapies to help women deal with nausea and vomiting of pregnancy. Three electronic databases were used to conduct systematic research, namely Pubmed, CINAHL Ebsco, and Proquest between 2004 and 2019. Those studies included in the review were only a randomized controlled trial design. Of the 898 articles, 16 articles met the inclusion criteria and were analyzed. This systematic review provides evidence of non-pharmacological methods that can be used as an alternative to conquer nausea and vomiting of pregnancy, namely ginger, acupressure, acupuncture, and aromatherapy. Further research can examine which method is most effective in dealing with nausea and vomiting of pregnancy.
