Ayurveda classics have mentioned Garbhini Chardi as one among the Vyakta Garbha Lakshanas, which can be correlated with emesis gravidarum. Emesis gravidarum is a worldwide common obstetrical problem seen in the first trimester in about 50% of pregnant women. In this condition nausea and vomiting tend to be the start in the morning and frequently continue throughout the day. Altered hormonal and immunological states are considered responsible for the initiation of the manifestations which is probably aggravated by the neurological factors. For such physiological alteration, if proper care is not given, it may lead to complication like tiredness, weight loss, etc. which may affect mother and growing fetus.

Results: Dhatripanaka was found to be effective in all subjective and objective parameters. Conclusion: Dhatripanaka and Tab. Doxinate is equally effective in Garbhini Chardi w.s.r. Emesis Gravidarum.
