Pregnancy Sickness Support is a national UK charity that was set up to support sufferers of Hyperemesis Graidarum - the most severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy.

More about Pregnancy Sickness Support

While nausea and vomiting in pregnancy is very common - affecting 70-80% of pregnant women, the extreme end of this condition is called Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which is a potentially life threatening condition that can have a profound affect on the sufferers health and well being. Historically pregnancy sickness in any form was thought to be a psychosomatic condition, and although it was been proven otherwise and there are now medicines to help, shockingly there are still many GP's and midwives who are mis-informed and sadly many women still come across unsympathetic health professionals who are ignorant of current treatment methods.

Pregnancy Sickness Support runs a national support network for women suffering any degree of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. It is essential women and their partners have access to support and comfort as the condition can be very isolating, with women often left feeling misunderstood and alone for months on end when housebound.

The charity operates a helpline for both pregnant women and their loved ones. They also have a physical network of staff made up of volunteers who have first hand experience of the condition. Pregnancy Support Sickness can discuss treatments with doctors and give advice on coping strategies to use at home. They also run official training programs for healthcare professionals.

All this vital work is funded by supporters' kind donations and your old car donations could make a significant contribution to raise awareness of the condition and improve care for sufferers and their loved ones.

The charity is not just trying to cope with the result of this condition, but is also working hard researching the cause of Hyperemesis Gravidarum. The charity's trustees have had a number of papers published in recent years and have been involved in numerous studies and research projects.

If you would like your old car to help fund this important research and support pregnant women suffering with this severe condition Pregnancy Sickness Support would be delighted to receive your help.
