HG, Hyperemesis Gravidarum – a debilitating, life threatening pregnancy illness that can claim the life of both mother and child. Join us on May 15, 2014 as we help raise awareness around the world for the Second Annual HG Awareness Day. 1 out of 1,000 pregnant woman suffer from HG, including teens. I suffered from HG. You can learn more about HG at the Hyperemesis Education and Research Foundation (HER) at www.helpher.org. Here at TLT we are also sharing a series of posts, some of them my own stories, to help raise awareness and make sure that pregnant women and their friends and family can recognize the signs and seek appropriate care. Early, aggressive treatment can make all the difference.
