The Sick Film is a short documentary about Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG), a life changing and debilitating complication of pregnancy, which leaves women suffering from extreme nausea and sickness. It is NOT morning sickness and it is not normal.
Charlotte Howden suffered with the condition in 2015 when she was pregnant with her son Henry after 20 weeks of battling the physical challenges of the disease, she did get better and was able to manage the condition through medication.
In 2018 after realising that the mental impact of the condition had not left her, she decided to produce the world’s first documentary about the disease.
Charlotte teamed up with filmmaker Lorne Guy and nearly a year and a half later, the Sick film is ready to be launched on the 15th May 2020.
