Personalized Emotional
Support & Coping Strategies for Your HG Pregnancy

Are you pregnant and so nauseous that you can’t function?​ ​​​​Do you feel you have extreme morning sickness far beyond what you expected or can handle on your own? 

​Are you vomiting all day long, even after following all the tips and tricks for morning sickness? Are you so sick you’re unable to care for yourself, work, or be there for your other children?


You might have Hyperemesis Gravidarum or "HG."​ ​

You don't have to do this alone. An HG pregnancy coach can help.

What is Hyperemesis Gravidarum?


Historically misdiagnosed and poorly understood, new research confirms HG is indeed physiological rather than psychological—a reaction to the hormone GDF15. The condition is very real and takes a huge toll on the mental and emotional well-being of women suffering through an HG pregnancy.


An HG coach can help you navigate the stress and negative feelings associated with HG, empowering you to discover your strength, hope, and resilience.

Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) is characterized by severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. HG affects between 1% and 3% of all pregnant women and goes far beyond typical morning sickness.

Meet Andrea, Your Coach

Hello and welcome!

I'm Andrea Stefens, a mother of two and HG pregnancy survivor. After a decade of experience as a creative arts therapist, I'm now a passionate HG coach for HG warrior women and their families. I specialize in supporting women through hyperemetic pregnancies and the postpartum healing afterwards.

During my two HG pregnancies, I lived the pain and frustration, the isolation, and even the shame that comes from not receiving the support you need to help you cope. It's an arduous journey and I'm here to support you at every step.

My commitment to you is I will provide you with the emotional support you need by creating a space of empathy and understanding during this difficult experience. While full relief may not be possible, you can learn real-world coping strategies to get you through the extreme nausea and vomiting associated with HG and to a healthy newborn to welcome into your family. 


You CAN do this. I'm here to show you how.

Why Choose Coaching?

"Listen to the pregnant girl; she knows what she's talking about. When it's not morning sickness, it's not morning sickness."

Coaching supports you, your partner, and your family. 

  • I have been in your shoes with an HG pregnancy. As a coach, I am a safe, understanding landing place for your questions and frustrations and an advocate when you need it most.

  • HG is a challenging and debilitating pregnancy illness. As a coach, I can help you be more efficient in managing your pregnancy with the limited time and energy you have. 

  • When dealing with HG, the side effects create a domino effect that topples the medical, personal, professional, and financial lives of not only you but your partner and family. As a coach, I can provide you with tools and support to keep more of your dominos standing. 


"If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now. And when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong."

―Masaru Emoto, The Secret Life of Water
