What is hyperemesis gravidarum?

Hyperemesis gravidarum is a medical condition that occurs in less than 2% of all pregnancies, when nausea/vomiting associated with morning sickness is severe and continues past the 16th week. Medical attention is needed as it can result in dehydration, malnutrition, and the body becoming more acidic which can endanger the growing fetus.
