Very helpful.

It has been great & very insightful to hear other people’s stories and see what help they did or didn’t get to help me be able to advocate better for myself. Charlotte has worked incredibly hard in the HG community and continues to do so. I feel very lucky to of had the opportunity to speak to her. HG can be a lonely place but this is the most honest you will hear a sufferer and that’s exactly what we need. A space we feel confident talking in, a place we aren’t judged and a place not only we can listen but a place we are listened too.

HG remembering

This is such a thoughtful space to come and remember the trauma of my HG. I’m currently wondering whether to continue a new pregnancy after suffering with it for the full pregnancy with my first. A scary situation to be in but this feels like somewhere I can really think about the reality of what I might be facing and how I might get through it. Thank you!

Excellent

Very insightful podcast for anyone to connect with. A particularly valuable resource for anyone suffering, directly or indirectly, due to this condition. Charlotte is contributing massively to the HG community and working tirelessly.
