‘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

HG Facts

Hyperemesis Gravidarum rarely ends at 12 weeks of pregnancy. It typically improves in the middle of pregnancy, but symptoms often last until birth. 

Therapeutic Termination

Sadly, many women who experience hyperemesis gravidarum, at some point in their pregnancy will consider termination as a treatment and the Hyperemesis Research Foundation in America found that over 10% of pregnancies complicated by Hyperemesis Gravidarum were terminated. Here in the UK a large scale survey we conducted found 9% of women had terminated. More often than not this is due to inadequate treatment of symptoms and a lack of support and understanding from Health Care Professionals, employers and the general public. If you are considering termination as an option please contact us first to explore all your treatment options first.

There are a number of women in our support network who have themselves terminated due to hyperemesis and and there is also a section on our forum to help women who have lost babies to hyperemesis gravidarum.
