Duchesnay USA, a pharmaceutical company specializing in women’s health, along with celebrity partner, actress, mom and singer Jana Kramer and her Ob-Gyn, Dr. Jay Goldberg are continuing to raise awareness about morning sickness and the importance of communicating with your doctor. Jana and Dr. Goldberg recently sat down to discuss the importance of communication surrounding pregnancy, highlighting specific challenges that women suffering from morning sickness may experience during their pregnancy journey.
Jana Kramer and Duchesnay USA, who announced their continued collaboration earlier this year, worked with Dr. Jay Goldberg to produce a video about morning sickness to provide women with important information during their “secret trimester” – the first trimester, when many women have yet to announce their pregnancy and often suffer from nausea and vomiting in silence.

“I am so lucky to have such a great relationship with Dr. Goldberg. I have always felt comfortable talking with him about any of my pregnancy concerns,” said Jana. “I hope this video helps women feel empowered to speak to their doctors candidly as soon as their morning sickness symptoms start and to discuss a safe and effective treatment option if diet and lifestyle changes don’t work for them.“
“I hate to see so many of my pregnant patients feeling miserable during what should be a happy and exciting time. Especially when a safe and effective treatment option is available if diet and lifestyle changes don’t work,” said Dr. Goldberg. “I also make sure that they understand that nausea and vomiting of pregnancy is a real medical condition that can get worse if left untreated. That’s why, when non-medicine treatments don’t work, like in Jana’s case, I prescribe Bonjesta® (doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride).”
Bonjesta® (doxylamine succinate and pyridoxine hydrochloride) is a new FDA-approved prescription medication for the treatment of morning sickness, where diet and lifestyle changes have failed, that is designed to be fast-acting, long-lasting.[i] Bonjesta® has not been studied in women with hyperemesis gravidarum. The most common side effect of Bonjesta® is drowsiness.1
