Situation

Often described as intolerable, the symptoms of Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) during pregnancy are too often misunderstood, misdiagnosed and many sufferers are left feeling invalidated, effecting their physical and mental wellbeing, potentially leading to termination and PTSD. Pregnancy Sickness Support aim to improve the experience and alleviate the suffering of people affected by Pregnancy Sickness including HG as well as contributing to vital research on this debilitating condition.

Solution

The provision of a free helpline to give information and support. To provide high quality peer support to those suffering. The production of information to explain the condition and its treatments through various platforms. Providing resources and information to inform and educate doctors and healthcare professionals about the condition via a range of platforms. Raising awareness of Pregnancy Sickness and Hyperemesis Gravidarum amongst the general public through articles and information.
