The UK charity supporting sufferers of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy and its severe form; Hyperemesis Gravidarum.
We are working hard researching the cause and treatment of NVP and HG and produce educational and supportive information for sufferers, carers and health care professionals.
Our volunteer network is made up of women around the UK who have suffered hyperemesis gravidarum, or severe pregnancy sickness themselves.To volunteer for us they will have been through an application process which includes a telephone interview and professional references as well as online training. When a women who is suffering contacts the charity their needs are discussed with our support coordinator and information about coping strategies and treatments are given for women who have not been able to look through our website. If the sufferer would like support from a Volunteer Peer Supporter then our support coordinator will register them with the charity and look to find them a volunteer who will support them via text, email, phone or sometimes face to face throughout their pregnancy while symptoms persist.
