I have always been a nauseous person since I was a baby. But nothing, and I mean not even those late nights drinking as a teenager, could have prepared me for the nausea and vomiting, I began to experience around the 9-week mark of my first pregnancy. 

It wasn't just morning sickness. It was all day. All. Day. Long. Every. Day. I struggled to get out of bed, to get ready for work, to drive to and from work, to stick to social plans with friends and family, and of course, to simply, eat. 
It was isolating, I didn't know what to do. It's a hard time because I was scared to tell anyone I was pregnant before the 12 week mark, but then I was suffering in silence. And, my first doctor appointment wasn't until 12 weeks, so I was essentially stuck in limbo, being told to just eat what I could and stay as hydrated as possible, until that first appoint. A whole month of constant nausea induced vomiting that consisted of crackers, bile, and stomach acid. At one point, the vomiting was so bad I couldn't breathe. I was so weak, had lost so much weight, that I fainted.

I struggled physically, mentally and emotionally. I thought to myself how do women do this? How is there nothing out there for me to help me with this horrific condition? Something that didn't leave me drowsy and so fatigued after taking it, too. 

This wasn't acceptable. I felt compelled to do something about this. To create the product that I was searching for. 

So, on my journey to create Lokhia, I relied heavily the HER Foundation in regard to research and information.The HER Foundation is the global voice of HG Progress. A 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides support, groundbreaking research, advocacy, and education on hyperemesis. 

This is why 1$ for every unit of Lokhia anti-nausea sold will be donated to help aid in the effort to help those struggling with Hyperemesis Gravidarum.
