Genna Rourke has had two HG pregnancies and shares her experiences in this episode. She started the support group, HG Warriors-Hyperemesis Gravidarum on facebook, during her second battle with Hyperemesis Gravidarum because she needed a support group that better met her needs. Now it has over 800 members.
HG Warrior- Husbands, Boyfriends, Significant Others (for the men who need support from other men who have been there.)
Recently, she started a non-profit charity at HGWarriors.com where she is trying to raise awareness, support women and their families who are suffering with HG and educate medical staff how to best treat HG.
She created “Hyperemesis Gravidarum, The Ultimate Survivor’s Guide“, which you can download here. Especially if you’re in the UK, you need to know how to navigate the medical care system to get the treatment you need.
