Course Overview

Hyperemesis gravidarum is a complication of pregnancy when there is severe, continuous vomiting and nausea, which in turn affects the mother‘s health in various ways, including her quality of life. One in every 200 pregnancies is affected by hyperemesis gravidarum. Although mortality is rare, morbidity is high since women are often left debilitated. Many women are unable to perform day-to-day functions, such as going to work and caring for their spouse and children. Hyperemesis is a serious condition and if left untreated, can have possible fetal consequences, including termination of pregnancy. Treatment of this condition is difficult since the exact cause is unknown. Lifestyle and diet changes are considered first line. If that is not sufficient, patients use other forms of treatment, which include pharmacotherapy, natural supplementation, and/or acupressure.
