I have always had a passion for helping others and working with charities; I have recently started volunteering with Pregnancy Sickness Support; you can find out more about the volunteer work here.
Following on from the articles that I have recently written on Hyperemesis Gravadirum, it became clear that there were a lot of people who wanted to share their stories in the hope of raising awareness and helping others; then the idea dawned on me..... why don't I have a section on my blog dedicated to raising awareness of Hyperemesis and in the process, allow other Hyperemsis sufferers to share their stories! Then as if by magic, I call God given, I came up with the name H.O.P.E; this stands for Helping Others and Promoting Education!
I hope in time that this section of my blog will be a way of helping women who have experienced Hyperemesis to write down their stories and hopefully gain some release as well as bringing much needed awareness.
Over time I would like to expand my H.O.P.E concept to cover not just Hyperemesis, but any issues that may relate to someone during pregnancy, labour, parenting or general health. I hope charities will link up with me so together we can raise awareness where it is needed and educate people in the process. So what do you think? Do you have a story to share that could give hope to someone else? If so please get in touch. You can tell your story anonymously if you want to.
