HG Support for Mothers & Families

HER Foundation Research finds a very high loss rate among mothers with HG. Besides the many financial, social, and personal losses, there is the loss of life. Over 10% of HG pregnancies are terminated (HER FRS) and thousands more mothers consider it. Still more deal with miscarriage or late loss and still born infants. Our research finds 1 in every 4 babies do not make it to term when the mother has HG. Although rare, mothers still die each year due to organ failure secondary to HG, yet the number is unknown. The grief is great and can have lasting impact on families. This page is a resource for those dealing with the many losses of HG. We encourage you to talk with others with HG and seek professional help if needed.
