‘Been having the best time in Cornwall, turned my phone off to be present with the girls,’ the former soap star told her followers.

Helen recently revealed she would have to wait ‘a very long time’ before having another child due to suffering hyperemesis gravidarum during her pregnancy.

Hyperemesis gravidarum, which Kate Middleton also suffered from, is characterised by severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss and possibly dehydration.

Sharing her experience with the extreme morning sickness, the mother-of-three explained: ‘It got worse with each pregnancy. It was worth everything but it was horrendous.

‘As soon as I found out I was pregnant with Charlie, I said to my mum I hope I don’t get Hyperemesis. I hope I’m OK.

‘I had to live with my mum and dad for three, four months. I couldn’t look after them. Now I’m not pregnant I feel like a normal mum again, I have loads of energy which is lovely.’

Helen added: ‘I had medication that worked with Delilah but I was just immune with Charlie. You’re constantly sick but it makes you feel low as well, you’re so on your own.’

WHAT IS HYPEREMESIS GRAVIDARUM?

Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is defined as severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

Celebrities who’ve been open about their own battles with HG include:

  • The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton 
  • Kim Kardashian
  • Kourtney Kardashian
  • Debra Messing
  • Kelly Clarkson
  • Tia Mowry
  • Tori Spelling 
  • Amy Schumer 

It affects up to two percent of pregnant women.  

HG symptoms usually appear between weeks four and six and peak at 9-to-13 weeks.

Up to 20 per cent of sufferers experience symptoms up to weeks 14-to-20, however, most have relief in the later stages.

Unlike morning sickness, which affects up to 80 percent of pregnant women, HG causes severe dehydration and prevents sufferers from keeping any food down.

Other symptoms include:

  • Losing five percent or more of their pre-pregnancy weight
  • Reduced urination
  • Headaches
  • Confusion
  • Fainting
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • A rapid heart rate  

Some HG cases require hospitalization where women can receive IV fluids and nutrition. 

HG’s cause was thought to be hormonal, however, research suggests it may be due to genetic variations.
