She's been experiencing hyperemesis gravidarum since her first pregnancy. However, her third pregnancy had been the worst ever, causing her to make round trips to the hospital during her early term. Despite her love to having a big family, Helen has to say no to a fourth child.
Speaking to The Sun, she said, “I always really wanted four children, but after the hyperemesis this time, I could never go through it again. So the decision about having more children after this one has been taken out of my hands, really."
She had to spend her first months away from the girls because she was too out of it.
""I couldn’t even have the lights on because they made me dizzy. I couldn’t watch films or TV to try to take my mind off it and none of the medication worked," she recalled.
However, Helen accepted the fact that this will be her last child surprisingly well. She added, “It’s funny, I always thought if I knew I was carrying my last baby I would feel really sad about it, but because of what happened, I don’t see it like that. I see it as a positive decision and one I’m completely happy with.”
