Celebrating 16 Years of Help and Hope for HG

Everyone has a birthday, and October 1st is ours! We are celebrating 16 years as a 501(c)3 nonprofit! But what’s a birthday without gifts? We begin the celebration unwrapping gifts from our community…to our community. 

HG Courses

Our amazing partners in Copenhagen, CanopyLAB, have been working with us since June to prepare FREE online HG courses for you and your family. This is a dream come true for many of us: HG courses available for all. HER’s knowledge and CanopyLAB’s talent and platform come together to bring you four courses!!

Introduction to HG: Hyperemesis Gravidarum

HG: a survival guide for expecting moms

HG: tips, support, and resources

The ABC of HG for friends and family

Special birthday cheers and lots of love to #HGsister, Sahra-Josephine, CEO, and Yamanda, eLearning Designer, for making this happen. We are grateful!

16% and Giveaway


OCTOBER 1st ONLY, Your Little Dove is donating 16% of all sales to the HER Foundation! When we say, 16% of sales, we mean 16% of ALL sales. We are so thankful for this generous gift from #HGsister, Cindy, and how it will help to continue progress in education, research, and support. So go shopping for the holidays! Learn about how Cindy started this online heirloom toy company after the loss of her second little one.

In addition, Cindy is sponsoring a giveaway for YOU! Between October 1st and October 22nd, the three largest donors to the HER Foundation will receive store credits from Your Little Dove and be able to choose from the beautiful selection of items: these three lucky people will receive a gift of either $100, $50, or $25. Thank you Cindy!
