Happy Mother’s Day & HG Awareness Day!

What an exciting month for HG Awareness! From reaching and teaching docs at ACOG, the premiere OB conference, to HG Awareness Day on May 15, and the HER 5K Purple Bucket Run/Walk (with a 1 mile walk/run) on May 20th! The Purple Bucket Run is as much fun and awareness as it is fundraising for important genetics research to find a cause and cure for HG. Grant funding is rare for HG despite the devastating impact on families and the 1000’s of babies lost each year! Help us raise awareness and funding so more women and their children survive HG!

We’re hosting #PTSDchat on Twitter tonight, March 30th

HER is hosting #PTSDchat tonight at 6 pm PT (9 pm ET). Join us in a conversation about PTSD after HG via this special Twitter chat using the hashtag #PTSDchat.

Survivors of hyperemesis gravidarum may have problems with self-esteem, intimacy, guilt, and conditioned food aversions. Pregnant women may experience anxiety and depression related to helplessness from receiving inadequate treatment for hyperemesis, fear of the hyperemesis recurring in future pregnancies, painful and invasive treatments, and having to face the fear of serious harm or death to herself and/or her unborn child.
