Support is Vital

"The support I received over the past 6 weeks helped get me through what has been the toughest time of my life. Having someone who really who really understood the condition give advice helped us through and crucially, at times, gave me really useful information I didn't get from my own medical practitioners. In my experience, HG is such a debilitating and lonely struggle, the more support you get the better chance you have of surviving it" - Lisa, from London.

About us

Hyperemesis Ireland is a fledgling charity founded in 2017 by a small group of women affected by hyperemesis and proactive healthcare professionals with an interest in the condition.

Our aims are as follows:

  • To provide information and support to women and families affected by hyperemesis gravidarum in Ireland.
  • To provide information that informs and educates healthcare professionals about care and treatment of hyperemesis gravidarum
  • To raise public awareness about hyperemesis gravidarum, it's impacts and available treatments, through media liaison and public engagement
  • To support and encourage research into hyperemesis gravidarum
 
Hyperemesis Ireland is predominantly focused on those women with extreme symptoms of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy known as hyperemesis gravidarum. However, the charity and it's trustees recognise that women experience a wide spectrum of pregnancy sickness symptoms and provided information and support to any women effected by nausea and vomiting of pregnancy regardless of severity and/or diagnosis.
