Morning sickness link found

30th April 2010

New research has suggested that morning sickness could be hereditary.

A study published in the British Medical Journal says that pregnant women are three times more likely to suffer from severe morning sickness if their mothers did and that around 2% of women suffer excessive nausea and vomiting in pregnancy - known as hyperemesis gravidarum - which can require hospital treatment. The study of 2.3 million births showed a threefold higher rate in those whose mothers had had the condition.
