Amy Schumer Has Been Forced To Cancel The Remainder Of Her Tour Due To ‘Hyperemesis’

Amy Schumer

Comedian Amy Schumer has been forced to cancel the remainder of her tour due to suffering with hyperemesis – or severe morning sickness.

The I Feel Pretty star had been in the middle of her stand up comedy tour that saw her travelling around the US, while dealing with the condition while pregnant with her first child.

Amy announced her exciting pregnancy news on social media back in October, just eight months after marrying her boyfriend, Chris Fischer in a fab Malibu ceremony.

Now, the star has been forced to give the rest of her tour dates a miss as she focuses on her health and baba.

The condition hyperemesis was one of the main reasons that the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton was forced to announce her three pregnancies to the world – as she was hospitalised each time due to complications.

According to Hyperemesis Ireland, the condition ‘is a complication of pregnancy in which women experience extreme levels of nausea and vomiting.’

‘Unlike regular pregnancy sickness which affects around 70-80% of pregnant women to some degree and is considered a normal, if unpleasant, part of pregnancy, hyperemesis is not normal and can be potentially life threatening without adequate treatment.’

Fair play to Amy for taking the time out she needs to look after herself!
