BENEFITING: HYPEREMESIS EDUCATION & RESEARCH FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Feb 14, 2016

HER Hyperemesis Education Research Foundation

THE STORY:

The HER Foundation provides support and resources around the world. As such, we need to:

  1. update our site’s navigation to improve access to the many resources;
  2. pay for the HER HG awareness events like the 5k;
  3. contribute to Dr. Fejzo's research in collaboration with USC and UCLA; 
  4. attend & present @ medical conferences;
  5. develop and pay for print resources; and
  6. design a HER app for HG moms.

HER Foundation has been helping generations of babies since 2003. HER is the world's largest network of hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) survivors and leading site for HG information on the Internet. Our mission is to advance HG research and provide education and support to those seeking effective management strategies for hyperemesis gravidarum (HG).

Hyperemesis Gravidarum:
HG is a disease of pregnancy characterized by dehydration and production of ketones, nutritional deficiencies (malnourishment) metabolic imbalances, loss of weight, and difficulty with daily activities due to the severity of nausea and vomiting.

While HG is thought to be a short term disease, HG is not a 9 month disease. Babies born after an HG pregnancy are more likely to be born premature, have a low birth weight, and have a four fold increase in neuro-behavioral disorders, allergies, and sensory integration disorders. Mothers experience long term complications with 18% demonstrating the full criteria for PTSD, an increased rate of depression/anxiety in pregnancy, and other long term health issues. HG pregnancies are more likely to lead to miscarriage than a healthy pregnancy, and under/untreated HG causes many mothers to undergo therapeutic termination because of severity and medical mismanagement.

Hospitalizations and long term effects make HG a potentially devastating pregnancy complication. More research and support are crucial to reduce the emotional, physical, social, and financial costs.

The HER Foundation is the voice of support and hope to all who are faced with managing an HG pregnancy and its lasting effects.
