Our new collaborative study with UCLA/USC & 23andMe has proven that the pregnancy disorder often said to be psychological is caused by genes instead! Support our next phase of research and tell others: "IT'S IN HER GENES, NOT HER HEAD!"

How YOU can make a difference:
1. Share in our HG Awareness campaign
2. Follow us on FB, Twitter & Instagram
3. Volunteer to help HER Foundation
4. Donate to support education/research

What is HG?
At least 1 million women are estimated to suffer from a serious pregnancy disease each year that takes the lives of thousands of babies (and some mothers) due to chronic malnutrition and dehydration from debilitating nausea and vomiting. The disease known as HG (hyperemesis gravidarum) is often misunderstood, unrecognized or assumed to be psychological, and thus is inadequately treated. This means women suffer to the point of being traumatized, choosing therapeutic termination, or having serious short and long-term health issues. The children too often are affected as well. With proper treatment, most issues can be minimized or prevented, and the 1 in 3 loss rate is reduced. Grants are rarely given for HG work, so please consider supporting HER's collaborative research and education projects with a monthly donation and help save the life of a mother and baby!

Be HG aware and educate others, donate to support education and research (HG does not get grants!), and show love to an HG mother today!
