October is Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) Awareness Month!
The founder of the Ayden Rae Foundation, Vanessa Pack, reached out to me on Facebook after reading my blog post about my struggle with HG. After joining the Ayden Rae Foundation’s closed Facebook group, I’ve been truly humbled by how severe HG can be for some women.
Some women have lost their children due to HG. I can’t even begin to imagine the pain and hopelessness that mothers must feel when they’re suffering from HG and there is nothing that they or their doctors can do.
I’ve realized how lucky I am that, while I suffer from HG, it’s not nearly as severe as it is for others. I’ve read the petition, been educated, and signed it with tears in my eyes. I hope you will, too. If you’re interested in learning more and signing the petition, please click here.
