Partner

The HER (Hyperemesis Education & Research) Foundation is a nonprofit that provides support, groundbreaking research, advocacy, and education on hyperemesis. Since 2000, HER has been the leading source of information on HG and a trusted lifeline for hundreds of thousands of families across the globe.

Approach

HER foundation has partnered with CanopyLAB to create free online courses on the LAB for anyone in the world through short, relatable and easy to digest content. Courses include a survival guide for expecting mothers, a breakdown of physical and psychological symptoms and remedies and even an introductory HG course for family members, friends and anyone involved in the life of an HG mom.

Users can explore course content at their own pace and easily access or revisit specific materials such as videos, infographics and additional resources within the units. The platform’s social features will create a space for mothers who spend a significant amount of time alone at home or in the hospital during their pregnancy to connect with a global support system.

Testimonials

"Developing an educational course for moms and their supporters has long been a desire of HER, but the right platform and structure were never combined until CanopyLAB. The gift of CanopyLAB is the quality of the platform and the presentation of the information which allows people to freely navigate as time permits, and the support of our amazing eLearning Designer, making it all possible to create innovative learning experiences for our community and others."
