HG Support in Australia

Hello everyone!
Firstly I will introduce myself - My name is Roni. I'm 27 and have 2 beautiful girls born through HG. Adelle is 3 and 1/2 and Hayley is 12 weeks old. I live in Cranbourne, Victoria.
I am admin on a FB page called Hyperemesis Gravidarum Support Australia, we also have a closed group that goes by the same name which allows everyone to post freely without fear of their comments or posts being seen by everyone on their newsfeed. Please feel free to come and join us. If you can't find us then request to add me as a friend (Veronica Sayers) and I will add you to the private group - just send me a message also and let me know that it why you are adding me as a friend.
Anyway - if you don't have FB or don't use it often I am also happy to communicate by e-mail and once e-mail has been established I will be happy to meet up (if you are in Victoria!!) or to give you my contact number so you can call or text any time you need.
Although I have made it out the other side of HG and don't intend (yet....) on having another baby, I know what it is like. It can be so lonely to be experiencing HG and affects so many aspects in your life. Once HG is over it can continue to affect you in many ways.
I felt very alone through my Hg experiences and this is why I am offering my support to anyone who needs it. If you have HG, are planning a subsequent HG pregnancy, have previously suffered HG or have a friend or family member suffering - I would be more than happy to talk with you.
My e-mail address is vnmenkens@hotmail.com
Please feel free to contact me any time

Hi Roni,
Another Oz HGer here, my fifth HG bub (4th HG pregnancy as I 'cheated' and had twins lol) was just born on Monday, in fact we're still in hospital even. We're in Sydney. I'll come and find the group on FB :)

Hi Emma,
I added you from my phone but I am not sure if it worked properly. Can you please check and let me know? If it didn't work then I will try another way.
Thank you

Hi Roni

I'm going good, I've been participating in the FB group and feel a bit less stressed for 'next time', knowing I will have the support :)

Thanks
