HG and Loss
Everyone's experience of baby loss is different but they all have one thing in common: Loss is devastating. Loss after HG can feel like a double dose of cruelty; to suffer so much and not have a baby to bring home at the end of it.
No matter the outcome of your HG pregnancy, you belong here.
It can be hard to make sense of all the feelings you may be experienceing alongside the grief of losing a baby. However you feel is ok. Many people who experience HG and Loss feel isolated and alone in their suffering especially when friends and family find it difficult to talk about. We are here for you.
Join our Community Space today to share your experience and find others who have been through HG and Loss too.
"Nothing can prepare you for the death of your baby, or take away the pain of the loss, but if you feel like you'd benefit from sharing your experience, we are here for you. Counselling is for you whether your baby died 1 week or 10 years ago, you don't have to struggle alone." Caroline, Counselling Team
Our Specialist HG Counselling team are available to offer space and support to process all of your feelings about your experience, both HG and Loss.

Here's what one of our charity partners, Sands has to say about HG & Loss.
“At Sands we understand that when someone experiences Hyperemesis Gravidarum during pregnancy it can leave both them and their family with lasting trauma. When this is coupled with the heartbreaking loss of a pregnancy or baby, it can raise complex and challenging emotions to navigate. At Sands we are here to support anyone who is affected by pregnancy loss or the death of a baby."
