Lets talk about ginger

Lets talk about ginger

“Have you tried ginger” is a common suggestion received by sufferers of hyperemesis gravidarum from friends, colleagues, relatives and healthcare professionals, fact!

Now I'm going to be very careful here because I don't want to lead or skew responses, but... I want to explore how hearing the suggestion of ginger makes women feel and the mental impact it has, either positive or negative. I want to know if they find it helpful and comforting or if it has a negative impact and increases isolation.

If I get enough responses from this I will look to get it published in a healthcare journal but due to the self selected nature of my readership I will need a LOT of responses to make it credible. To take part you need to have been admitted to hospital at least once for hyperemesis gravidarum in the last ten years.

In the meantime I'll publish preliminary results on this blog so if you want to know when they are out then sign up using your email address in that little "subscribe" box on the right...

The survey will take around 5-10 mins depending on how much thinking you have to do and how much you have to say on the matter...
