Support is Vital

"The support I received over the past 6 weeks helped get me through what has been the toughest time of my life. Having someone who really who really understood the condition give advice helped us through and crucially, at times, gave me really useful information I didn't get from my own medical practitioners. In my experience, HG is such a debilitating and lonely struggle, the more support you get the better chance you have of surviving it" - Lisa, from London.

The Impact of HG on Women's Reproductive Lives - A Narrative Research Project

Have you experienced a pregnancy affected by Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG)? Do you want to tell your story for research?

HG researcher, Caitlin Dean, in conjunction with Plymouth University is recruiting women to take part in a project to explore women’s experience of HG and how it has impacted their reproductive lives. If you have had one or more pregnancies affected by HG you may be eligible to take part.

We are looking for women willing to share their whole HG story, from beginning to end including any potential affects in the future. You can either write or type your story in your own time or you can tell the researcher, Caitlin, your story over the phone, via skype or face-to-face (depending on location). If you choose to tell your story by phone, skype or face-to-face it would be recorded and transcribed. After this Caitlin may get in touch with you again to clarify parts of your story or ask you to expand on aspects. For full details of what is involved please click here.

To be able to take part you need to live in the UK and be over 18 years old.

We want to ensure that women from all sorts of backgrounds are represented and that the women interviewed represent the diversity of pregnant women in Britain today. To ensure this we are asking women interested in taking part to fill in an online form giving us some details about themselves.

Hopefully everyone who wants to take part will be able to but if a lot of women apply then we may not be able to include everyone in the research. We will contact you within one week to let you know if you are able to take part.
