Join the HER Foundation as we raise awareness about HG Hope during HG Awareness Month, May 2024.

The annual theme is decided in collaboration with leaders of HG organizations and groups from across the globe. 

From our exciting new research finding GDF15 is the cause of HG, new HG clinics offering specialty care, and our many clinical resources, we believe the future for those with HG will be different. 

Our theme for HG Awareness Month is HOPE. 

  • What do you hope will change? 
  • What do you hope changes in HG treatment? How would you like to see providers change their treatment of HG?
  • What do you wish others understood about HG? 
  • What do you feel needs to change in order for HG to be a priority?
  • What do you hope is different for the next generation of children?


  • SHARE your HG story and SEND us your HG hope quote.
  • SHARE your HG pictures.
  • CREATE and SEND your HG memes.
  • FUNDRAISE for HG education & research.
  • INVITE others to follow the HER Foundation and learn more about HG.
  • DONATE to the HER Foundation.
  • SUBSCRIBE to receive updates.
  • USE the hashtags on your social: #HGAM24 #HGAD24 #HGhope
  • STAY UP TO DATE with the upcoming events!



At least 1 million women are estimated to suffer from a serious pregnancy disease each year that takes the lives of thousands of babies (and some mothers) due to chronic malnutrition and dehydration from debilitating nausea and vomiting. The disease known as HG (hyperemesis gravidarum) is often misunderstood, unrecognized or assumed to be psychological, and thus is inadequately treated. This means women suffer to the point of being traumatized, choosing therapeutic termination, or having serious short and long-term health issues. The children, too often, are affected as well. With proper treatment, most issues can be minimized or prevented, and the impact can be reduced. Be HG aware, educate others, and donate to support education and research (HG research rarely gets grant funding!!).

*HG: hyperemesis gravidarum (hyper = excessive, emesis = vomiting, gravidarum = in pregnancy)

**Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) is a debilitating and potentially life-threatening pregnancy disease marked by rapid weight loss, malnutrition, and dehydration due to unrelenting nausea and/or vomiting with potential adverse consequences for the mom-to-be and the newborn(s).
