Overview

According to the Hyperemesis Education and Research Foundation (HER), conservative estimates indicate that HG can cost a minimum of $200 million annually in in-house hospitalizations to treat the condition. Note that this figure does not include emergency room visits, and other types of assistance, so the figure is in actuality quite higher. Beyond the immediate financial impact, many families dissolve due to the stress of HG and women can suffer long term health consequences. Many women also lose their employment due to HG and decide to limit their family size rather than experience another HG pregnancy.
