This episode is all about Hyperemesis gravidarum, extreme sickness in pregnancy. I speak to Caitlin Dean, the chair of the charity Pregnancy Sickness Support, who explains why more research and awareness about this debilitating syndrome is so important, she also gives some brilliant tips and advice for people suffering with it.
My friend Perdita Nouril also joins me to tell us her story of having HG in both her pregnancies.

We are also working to train and support Health Care Professionals across the UK and Ireland and research into the cause and treatment of the condition.
