Morning Sickness During Pregnancy

See a doctor

Morning sickness is really common during pregnancy, which is thought to affect three in four mums-to-be.

On average morning sickness starts around the 6 week mark of being pregnant, but his varies from women to women.

While unpleasant to deal with, it won’t usually cause any issues for you or your baby and tends to clear up by 20 weeks.

However, in some rare cases, some women may develop a very severe condition called hyperemesis gravidarum, which causes intense nausea and vomiting.

If you’re looking for advice on managing morning sickness, or are worried about the intensity of your symptoms, speak to a doctor online today.
