Hyperemesis Gravidarum Education, Research & Awareness Petition

When your loved ones become your nurse and your unborn child becomes your illness, pregnancy no longer becomes a dream come true, it becomes a nightmare. Thousands of moms-to-be around the world are misdiagnosed, mistreated and misunderstood when they are told their dehydration, malnutrition and constant vomiting is simply morning sickness.  Their bodies literally reject food and water.  Many terminate due to despair and lack of proper diagnosis.  This misunderstood and deadly disease is called Hyperemesis Gravidarum – or HG.

We need YOUR help to press lawmakers, researchers and the medical community into action on behalf of HG sufferers everywhere.

We have heard from thousands of you over the past few years and our community continues to grow.  Now we are asking YOU to join us in the fight against HG and challenge the medical community and Congress to find a cause and cure.

Research will help fund:

  • Tracking of true HG rates in the U.S. and abroad
  • Engaging research labs that will result in more drug treatment options and provide a new medical protocol for HG care and treatment
  • Educating medical practitioners on the huge impact of the disease
