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.

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. 


Our Support Network is growing rapidly and we are always looking to recruit new Volunteer Peer Supporters. Volunteer Peer Supporters work with sufferers on a 1-2-1 basis via text, email, phone or sometimes face to face throughout their pregnancy while they have HG. They may also help with distributing leaflets in hospitals and health centres and help with fundraising.

To volunteer for Hyperemesis Ireland you need to fill in the application form below, including the details for two references. Next our Support Coordinator will contact you for a telephone or Skype interview and following the interview your references will be contacted. Once this process is complete you will be able to access the online training and once you have completed that you are considered active and ready to support other women.

Please note that although we encourage all applications, only women who have actually suffered nausea and vomiting in pregnancy will be able to support other women via the support network at the moment. If you have not suffered with NVP or HG there are lots of other ways to get involved and help us so please do apply.
