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.
Eradicate preventable maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity due to HG including: preterm birth, placental abruption, sepsis, preeclampsia, embolism, PTSD, PMADs, small for gestational age (SGA), neurodevelopmental delays, and autism spectrum disorders.
1 MOM is 2 Many, a collaborative campaign dedicated to creating meaningful policy that reduces maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity, launched in October 2020. This initiative builds on past progress:
Educate practitioners, families, and supporters across the globe on ways to manage and successfully cope with HG.
Advocate for policy to implement universal, adaptable treatment protocol to minimize the suffering and complications related to HG.
Since the launch of our website on May 1, 2020, in celebration of HG Awareness Month, we have had our information and resources accessed by people in over 80 countries.
