In this together October is back for 2023!

Pregnancy Sickness Support is asking partners, family members and friends of HG sufferers to join with HG community and complete an active challenge of their choice this October. 
In this together October offers a chance to raise awareness of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy (NVP), and the extreme form of the condition hyperemesis gravidarum (HG); as well as the opportunity to raise vital funds for our small but mighty charity. 

We need help now more than ever, to ensure that we can continue to provide:
  • our helpline, website and webchat, offering information and support, ensuring sufferers and family members have access to up to date information and support on NVP and HG.
  • training for health care professionals, with the aim that all sufferers are able to receive compassionate and appropriate medical treatment in their time of need
  • participation in new research, to understand more about the condition, and hopefully find a cure for future sufferers
  •  the lifeline of peer support provision, ensuring no sufferer feels alone whilst going through such a dark time in their life.
  • practical and emotional support for the partners/ carer's of HG sufferers throughout the UK.
  • our HG specific counselling service, where sufferers past and present can begin to heal the damage that HG has done to their mental health.
No matter what your level of fitness or what challenge you choose, joining the In this together October challenge is a an amazing way of saying ''I recognise your struggle and I appreciate how difficult it has been. I see you. I hear you. I support you.'
