Extreme morning sickness cause one thousand abortions a year in UK

Morning sickness is very common in early pregnancies. And almost every woman experiences it. Many women suffer severe morning sickness in first pregnancy. In second or subsequent pregnancies the level of morning sickness actually comes down.

But there are many women who suffer from extreme morning sickness. Now a latest study has concluded that this extreme morning sickness may be behind at least one thousand abortions every year in UK alone.

Reports suggest that Kate Middleton the Duchess of Cambridge suffers from extreme morning sickness. She is lucky as she has the best medical facilities available. Many others may not be that much lucky. A study claims that half of women who suffer the type of severe morning sickness don’t get any help. The report claims that as many as 1,000 have to resort to abortion due to extreme morning sickness.

pregnancyThe British Pregnancy Advisory Service and Pregnancy Sickness Support titled “I could not survive another day” said that many women couldn’t tolerate the problem and terminate their pregnancy as a result.

The report went on to add, “Our research suggests that a significant proportion of women who have ended wanted HG pregnancies were not offered the full range of treatment options, but expected either to put up with the sickness or undergo an abortion…While the experience of the Duchess of Cambridge has dramatically raised awareness of HG, the coverage inevitably did not reflect that many sufferers unfortunately struggle to obtain comparable treatment.”
