HG Facts

Hyperemesis Gravidarum rarely ends at 12 weeks of pregnancy. It typically improves in the middle of pregnancy, but symptoms often last until birth. 

Resources

We are currently the only charity in Ireland providing information and support to women with hyperemesis here, however, there are a number of excellent international resources you can access.

Pregnancy Sickness Support UKPregnancy Sickness Support is our sister charity in the United Kingdom, including Northern Ireland. Their website hosts a mountain of information from oral hygiene to managing your mental health. They also have a forum on their website which women from Ireland are welcome to join.
