Each year, the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action promotes World Breast Feeding Week from August 1-7. The 2022 theme is Step up for Breastfeeding: Educate and Support. While there are benefits for breastfeeding, not all HG survivors are able to breastfeed.
The third Thursday of every month from 12-1 PM/Central, the HER Foundation hosts an Online HG Support Group facilitated by licensed professional who are also HG survivors as a service to people with a current or prior diagnosis of hyperemesis gravidarum (HG). These groups are facilitated by volunteers Sarah Coffman and Elizabeth Lowder, HER Foundation Advisory Council members and HG survivors.
Thiamin (or thiamine) is another name for vitamin B1. It is a water-soluble, nontoxic B vitamin that is depleted within 2 weeks of not eating normally. Potentially life-threatening complications can develop for mom and baby if depleted.
The HER Foundation is thrilled to announce that Emmy-winning and Golden Globe-nominated standup comedian, actress, writer, producer, and director Amy Schumer will join the HER Foundation’s Board of Directors.
Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) presents different challenges in everyday life, but during holidays, it can be especially difficult to cope with your symptoms. Planning ahead according to your specific needs and self-advocating will help you to cope with sickness during holidays and family events.
The HER Foundation is the global voice of HG, and we are proud to celebrate the 11th annual HG Awareness Day on May 15th. Throughout the month of May, the international *hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) community is educating about #HGimpact! Together, we are changing the future for the next generation.
