Although nausea and vomiting in pregnancy occur in about 70% to 85% of all pregnancies, severe symptoms can lead to complications that may endanger the life of both the expectant mother and the fetus. Hyperemesis gravidarum affects about 0.3% to 2.3% of pregnancies and is defined as severe nausea and vomiting that result in weight loss, nutritional imbalance, and dehydration. This module will address the etiology, assessment, and management of the condition.


The goal of this hyperemesis gravidarum continuing education program is to update dietitians and nutrition professionals regarding the theories and treatment of HG. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the etiology and pathophysiology of HG
  • Describe assessment findings, including signs and symptoms along with pertinent lab values
  • Explain treatment options for HG
  • Compare the pros and cons of enteral versus parenteral nutrition in the treatment of HG
