During this uncertain time we're still here to support women who are experiencing HG and pregnancy sickness. In 2020 we saw the demand for our services increase massively, with a 300% increase in our requests for support online compared to 2019. We receive no funding from the government and rely heavily on the kind donations from our supporters to fund our work. We appreciate that these are difficult financial times for many people, however if you are able to donate even just a small amount it will really help us to continue to deliver our life-changing work.
Please take a look at our fundraising website
