After her bout with the severe morning sickness known as hyperemesis gravidarum, Kate Middleton has taken to hypnotherapy to regain her appetite, a friend claims.
Kate “still looks at food and feels nauseous,” Jessica Hay told Australia's New Idea, adding that the Duchess of Cambridge hasn't been the same since.
She's plagued by “that feeling you have when you’ve had food poisoning and your stomach’s shrunk ... she finds it very hard to eat a full meal and gets full quickly."
Hay said that this continuing issue led the 31-year-old wife of Prince William to seek the help of a hypnotherapist “in a bid to help with her appetite."
“The hypnotherapy is taking away any negative thoughts connected with food from morning sickness and replacing them with cravings for healthy, nutritious food.”
So far, so good, according to Hay, who said that Kate Middleton has been filling up on wholesome goodies like berries, broccoli, oatmeal and smoothies.
Maybe a nice roasted chicken recipe now and then too, for protein.
“All in all, Catherine’s very happy,” Hay said. “With so much family around her and William, they’re starting to enjoy the pregnancy after a traumatic start.”
Good to hear! What should Kate name her baby if it's a boy?
... or if it's a girl?
