Stella is a founding member of our Ambassador Council. She is a mom to two beautiful girls and suffered with hyperemesis with both of her pregnancies. Now she is using her voice to raise awareness about HG. She’s passionate about teaching people that hyperemesis is not just morning sickness but a serious condition that many people don’t know about or understand. Stella looks forward to lending her voice to erase the stigma surrounding hyperemesis.
Stella reports on hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) and the HER Foundation on The CW San Diego. The piece features her diagnosis with HG in first trimester and interviews with Marlena Fejzo, PhD., geneticist and member of the HER Board of Directors, and Dominique Albrecht, HER Advisory Council. The story highlights our new collaborative campaign, 1MomIs2Many.
In a second segment, Escobedo conducts a live interview with Kimber MacGibbon, HER co-founder and Executive Director, and the two discuss HG, treatment, research, and stigma.
