Survival Guide

Hyperemesis can be overwhelming and greatly impact both you and your family. At a minimum, it will disrupt your daily activities and make it difficult or impossible to fulfill many of your responsibilities for some time. It can also result in job loss, as well as render you completely dependent on those around you for a time. Most women are ill for three or four months, fewer experience vomiting or nausea until the birth of their child. It can be traumatic emotionally and some families will choose to forego future pregnancy plans. Often, proactive and aggressive treatment can alleviate much of your misery and lessen the adverse impact on your life. Finding a health care professional with this thinking and experience, however, can be a challenge.

This guide will provide you with ideas for coping with and managing your condition. Hopefully, it will also empower you to make informed decisions and survive HG with less suffering:
