HG Awareness Day

Hyperemesis Gravidarum World Awareness Day!

Today is the very first Hyperemesis Gravidarum World Awareness day. Sadly, there are many people (including doctors!) that do not know enough information about this pregnancy induced DISEASE! That's right, this is no morning sickness. It is a disease that causes unrelenting nausea and vomiting in pregnancy that makes the mother unable to eat or drink and leads to malnourishment, dehydration, and could potentially lead to death.

If you don't know what Hyperemesis is, now is your opportunity to find out! Go to www.helpher.org and you will find all kinds of information. You can also read the other pages on my blog and find out even more information as well as my personal story.

It is time for people to become more eductated on this awful disease! Share the information you learn with friends and family, point them to the HelpHer website, share this blog with them. Anything you can do to spread awareness. You never know when you may come across with someone who is suffering with HG and if you do, you will already be well informed!
