The HER Foundation is dedicated to those suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) and those who have survived it. Our mission is to advance HG research and education as well as provide resources and support to those seeking effective management strategies for hyperemesis gravidarum (HG).
HG is more than a pregnancy illness: HG increases risk of maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity and has a life-long impact on mothers, babies, and families. About 1 in 3 babies does not make it to term due to miscarriage, unwanted termination, and stillbirth, and many have increased risks of neurodevelopmental and behavioral disorders due to HG.
