‘I couldn’t believe it when I found out that there was a charity that deals with HG. I actually broke down, at last what I had seemed valid.’ - a hyperemesis gravidarum sufferer

Partnerships

Pregnancy Sickness Support recognises the need for inter-organisational working to further the agenda for pregnant women suffering nausea and vomiting in pregnancy and hyperemesis gravidarum. Since our inception we have worked hard to establish good relationships with a number of professional bodies, other charities and organisations with mutual aims. Here are some of the organisations we are proud to partner with.

The Hyperemesis Education and Research Foundation is our sister organisation in America. Working to further research and education into the extreme end of the NVP spectrum we collaborate particularly on coordinating international support for sufferers.

 

The Motherisk program in Canada is driving forward research in mother-child and pregnancy health matters. They provide information and support to women via a helpline.

 

The Pregnancy & Medicine Initiative is an independent, nonprofit organization that aims to raise awareness and help address the information vacuum concerning the use of medicines and medical treatment in pregnancy. They serve as an enabler, by connecting individuals, groups, and initiatives across the field of healthcare. They aim to bring this issue to the top of the healthcare agenda and facilitate the conversation around regulation, ethics, research and care.


Birmingham Women's Hospital is paving the way in excellent hyperemesis care in the UK. Their IV day unit sets a high standard which we hope one day to see across the UK. Consultant Miss Manjeet Shehmar sits on our Medical Advisory Board and works with us to further the research and service development aspects of the charity.




Nottingham University Hospital have partnered with us via their Better for You project in order to improve hyperemesis care across the county. Together we are establishing an IV day unit at the Queen's Medical Centre site as well as implementing a Primary Care treatment guideline for GP's in the county. There is a longer term ambition to establish an IV at Home service for the more rural areas of the county and support in the area will be coordinated effort between the charity and the hospitals.

Thanks go to NUH for the sample GP and Hospital guidelines on this website.

The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (bpas) is the UK’s leading independent reproductive healthcare provider. bpas supports reproductive choice by providing contraception and abortion services, primarily on behalf of the NHS. We are collaborating with them to ensure women suffering hyperemesis gravidarum have received full access to treatments, information and support before opting to end an otherwise wanted pregnancy.
