As it is announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting another baby, mums in Cornwall are getting advice on how to cope with extreme sickness.

Kate is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum again, which can be life threatening to mums and babies.

It is the same condition that made her so ill with George.

She is currently being looked after by doctors at Kensington Palace.

Catilin Dean from Lostwithiel has had it three times and helps support other mums through the charity Pregnancy Sickness Support.

She told Pirate FM morning sickness is common and normal: "Hyperemesis Gravidarum on the other hand is a very severe complication of pregnancy which is very dangerous and without appropriate treatment can lead to all sorts of complications for the mother and baby. A lot of babies are lost to Hyper Gr and there are a lot of long term health implications for the mother who has suffered without appropriate treatment.

"She probably knows what she has to come this time. The second time can be scary for that reason and there are other factors like when you've already got a child. There were times in my second pregnancy where I could only spend ten minutes a day with my first child before the activity and the smells got so much and my husband would have to take him away again and that's really upsetting."

Here are Caitlin's tips for easing things:

* Rest

* If you can eat - take a little and often. For example, nibble half a piece of toast and an hour later, have the other half

* Add a portion of protein with every snack

* Ask for help from friends and family - especially with childcare

* Seek help from medical professionals and support groups.
