Hyperemesis Gravidarum: List of Support Groups, Charities, Blogs and Resources

I thought it would be helpful to create a “go to” list of resources that can offer support, information and personal accounts of what it is like to suffer from Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

These are all groups, blogs and resources I have come across in the past year while researching for the book I am writing. If you know of any others that I have missed, or have a blog of your own, please do send them to me via my contact form or on twitter.

 

Charities and Support Groups

UK Based

Pregnancy Sickness Support is a national charity here in the UK that aims to inform and support women, their families, and those involved in their care. They have a wealth of information on their website and run a volunteer support network and a telephone helpline.

Pregnancy Sickness SOS is another UK based site providing information on HG.

US Based

The Hyperemesis Education and Research Foundation (Her) is a US based site which also has a huge range of information, research and support available for sufferers, their families and healthcare providers.

Beyond Morning Sickness is a site dedicated to raising awareness and sharing the stories of HG survivors. There is a book of the same name, which many HG sufferers read and rely on, and which was the inspiration for producing a UK based book (which is what I am currently working on).

European

Steunpunt HG is a Dutch website offering support and information to HG sufferers.

I wrote this “cheat sheet” as part of the book and have reproduced it as a PDF download for easy access.

Pregnancy Sickness Support have put together this fantastic printable weekly diary for monitoring symptoms of nausea and vomiting during pregnancy.

 

Blogs

As it has been almost a decade since my own HG pregnancy, I am not aware of blogs documenting current HG pregnancies. However the following blogs all have archives covering HG pregnancies, and I hope you will find them useful.
