Find a volunteer: If you are currently suffering with HG, find support from others who understand. HER volunteers offer social support and kindness. They are not medical professionals. They are HG survivors who want to make sure no one else ever feels alone with HG. Email help @ or visit our peer support page.

Get Involved

Welcome to the HER Foundation Volunteer area where you can find peer support in our Volunteer Nework or join #TeamHER to become part of HG Progress!

Hyperemesis Gravidarum is more than a pregnancy illness that impacts women and their families. HG impacts society. If you are reading this, you likely faced HG or a loved one did. Millions of women have HG across the globe each year and rely on resources and support from the HER Foundation to make it through their pregnancy.

HER Foundation is leading the efforts globally to educate doctors, increase awareness, and improve the management of HG, so mothers and babies can have a healthy future. We have helped over two million people since we came online in 2000 thanks to hundreds of volunteers.

We are donor-funded and largely volunteer-run. Grant funding for HG research is extremely rare, as is funding for program support. So we need your help!! Get involved! Have fun! You'll find that volunteering helps you heal and find #HGsisters for life!

** NOTE: We transferred to a new volunteer system in October, 2023. If you signed up before this date, you should have received a email notice from volunteers @ with an invite to the new platform. Use the sign-up button below to enter your data into the new system. You can email volunteers @ with questions. Once you onboard, you will have access to the volunteer job opportunity board and ability to update your information. We looking forward to having you on #TeamHER!

How will you change HG history? If you want to help others, spread awareness, and have at least 2 hours each month to offer, volunteering with the HER Foundation may be for you. Sign up here.


How can you make HG history? Supporting policies, reaching out to the media, writing to your representatives, and raising awareness are all ways you can create HG progress. Will you join us?

Volunteers In Action

HER volunteers are amazing people, and we are thankful for every single individual. We could not do what we do as a Foundation without all of them. We established the monthly Volunteers in Action award to honor those volunteer(s) who distinguish themselves in their work and commitment to our mission. Let us know if you would like to nominate someone!
