Nine Months Of...

See what our dedicated volunteers are doing to raise awareness and funds with our "nine months of..." campaign

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.

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.
