Review for Hyperemesis Education & Research Foundation, Clackamas, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2014 I was so happy to be pregnant! I had come so close in the past, so having hyperemisis gravidarum wasn't the first time I thought something was wrong with my body and felt disappointment and concern. There was a day when I just felt so terrible and I couldn't figure out what was wrong. I knew pregnancy shouldn't be as bad as it was! I think I Googled something like, "I'm pregnant and I can't stop throwing up ". The search results returned information on HER. It was at HER, that I found women like me! Not just women like me, but health care, education, advice, support, self care, tips, and advice! Without, HER I don't know how I could have coped. So many days and months I felt so alone and afraid. Today, I'm grateful to be able to connect with other women like some HER volunteers connected with me! I had books on HG, ginger in my mailbox, and some even offered to wash my dishes!
