After Hyperemesis Gravidarum
Although for many each pregnancy is very different and having pregnancy sickness in one pregnancy does not necessarily mean you will get it again, unfortunately for many women with severe nausea and vomiting in pregnancy and hyperemesis gravidarum the chances of it reoccurring are high. For many women the experience of their first pregnancies were so awful that they can't even contemplate going through it again. There is a number of ways in which you can prepare for an 'HG' pregnancy and in particular it is important you speak to your doctor about pre-emptive medication. See our page about preparation for an HG pregnancy.
If you are experiencing any issues following an HG pregnancy further help is available:
Please visit your GP with any ongoing symptoms or new concerns.
