HG is a devastating condition to many women and their families. It can result in a loss of their job and future career, as well as render them completely dependent on those around them for a time. Some women are ill for only a few months, others for their entire pregnancy, vomiting until the actual birth of their child.
It can be traumatic emotionally and some women choose to forego future pregnancy plans. Often, proactive and aggressive treatment can alleviate some of the misery and lessen the negative impact on a woman's life. Finding a healthcare professional with this thinking and experience, however, can be a challenge. And tragically, 34% of HG pregnancies end in loss: the greatest missing out associated with HG.
In this unit, we've gathered resources to support your mental well-being throughout HG.
