HG is a debilitating and potentially life-threatening pregnancy disease marked by rapid weight loss, malnutrition, and dehydration due to unrelenting nausea and/or vomiting with potential adverse consequences for the newborn(s). This community is to support and bring together moms who have or had Hyperemesis Gravidarum during their pregnancies.

A producer at Dr. Phil has offered to include a segment on HG in an upcoming show. To best show the reality of HG, we would like to video a woman with severe HG - PICC line/TPN, etc. There is no cost or requirements from you. They will install the cameras and do the video.
If you are will to participate in this important project, please let me know ASAP. Your face will be shown and you will be given the opportunity to talk about how HG has affected you. It's ok to have a messy house and no make-up. That is how it is. Some of the realities we want to reveal are the debility and the impact on thinking and emotions. The show is definitely not intended to show women with HG as psychologically unstable, but rather garner empathy and compassion, as well as a greater understanding of this disease.
Please email me the details of your situation and your phone number if you are interested. We are short on time, so let me know ASAP.
