“I had another little episode this week, unfortunately.”

Erin Molan, who is around eight months pregnant with her first child, has been rushed to hospital in an ambulance after suffering a fall in a shopping centre.

During an appearance on WSFM's Jonesy and Amanda Show on Thursday, the media personality explained that the scary incident took place at a Sydney shopping centre earlier this week after getting a series of shots.

Thankfully, she landed on her side which prevented any injury to her unborn baby.

"I had another little episode this week, unfortunately," the 35-year-old, who is expecting her first little bundle of joy with fiancé Sean Ogilvy, explained.

"I got my whooping cough and flu shot and had a little ... faint is a strong word, but a little fall in the Randwick shops."

Despite the nasty fall and trip to hospital, The Footy Show host managed to find some levity in the situation.

"I'm just filthy because I'd ordered a chocolate doughnut and a milkshake, and I kind of went [to hospital] after I'd paid but before I'd got the doughnut," she joked.

It's the second trip to the emergency room for the beloved presenter, who collapsed and hit her head after falling down because of low blood pressure earlier this year. The fall happened at Channel 9's Sydney studio.

"I had a little incident, which wasn't fun. I think I need to learn that my body isn't capable of what it was last year," Erin told Georgie Gardner and Karl Stefanovic on the TODAY show back in February.

"I'm in great health and the baby is fine," she added. "I hit my knees and I hit my head, but not my stomach so the baby is fine."

Nine's Director of Sport, Tom Malone, released a statement following the "frightening" fall.

It read: "Erin's the perfect example of Nine's business strategy in that she creates great content across all platforms for all of our content divisions - including Nine News, 20-1, 9Honey and of course The Footy Show and Wide World of Sports. Her work ethic is second to none."

"Right from the outset, we've told Erin that her health and her baby's health are the first priority and whatever precautions we need to take around that we will."

And the fainting episodes haven't been the only hiccup the bubbly presenter has endured during the pregnancy.

"It hasn't been fun. It's been horrendous, it's been awful!" Erin continued, speaking about her experience with Hyperemesis Gravidarum – the same condition Duchess Catherine endured through all three of her pregnancies.

Here's to a speedy recovery, Erin! Not long to go now...
