Nausea and vomiting in pregnancy (NVP) occur in approximately 70% to 85% of all pregnancies and severe symptoms can lead to health complications that may endanger both the expectant mother and their unborn child (DynaMed, 2019). Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) affects about 0.3% to 3% of pregnancies and is defined as recurrent nausea and vomiting that results in weight loss, severe malnourishment, and dehydration (London et al., 2017). This educational activity will address the etiology, assessment, and management of this condition.
