Pregnancy sickness condition HG affects around 15,000 women each year – including the Duchess of Cambridge. 

Now PhD student Caitlin Dean is leading an international conference to help improve associated treatment. The International Colloquium on Hyperemesis Gravidarum (ICHG) 2017 is open to healthcare professionals, academics and patients themselves to share research and best practice into the condition. 

Characterised by extreme nausea and vomiting, HG can lead to a host of complications from dehydration and weight loss to life threatening illness. The event is run in collaboration with charity Pregnancy Sickness Support (PSS) and the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) and welcomes speakers from around the world to showcase their recent work on topics such as nutritional guidelines, psychology of women affected by HG and genetic research behind the condition.
