Support for Partners and Carers

It is quite likely that neither of you will receive much sympathy or support for the problems of NVP, because 25% of women have no NVP during pregnancy and another 35% have only up to 33 hours or less of NVP in a pregnancy, so naturally 60% of women and their husbands or partners feel there is no significant problem with NVP. Also the term “morning sickness” tends to trivialises the condition and as just 14% of women have NVP only in the mornings the term is clearly misleading. However, there are about 30% of women who have NVP have a total of between 100 and 700 hours of nausea during a pregnancy, so there will be strong support from a fairly small sector of women and their menfolk. Try to find a sympathetic friend who will understand your present problems all too well.

 

 

Support Forum

We recommend joining our forum for support where you can connect with other partners going through the same challenges as you. When you register to join you will be given access to the partners section where you can post in an area where your suffering partner will not be able to see, equally you will not have access to the area in which she posts. 

To talk to us for further information or support our details are on our contact page.
