"We must bridge the gap with patients and the medical community."
Yeni has been part of HGBDATA since 2011. Before Hyperemesis Gravidarum hit her newlywed family, she was going to school for her BA in Criminal Justice and Mechanical Engineering but Yenii did not know that she would met the love of her life when she least suspected it. Before HG, Yeni was a bodybuilder and into fitness: it was one of her passions that she enjoyed very much. Yeni volunteered in a convalescent home caring for many elderly women and men that were left to die and she would brighten there day by talking with them and making them feel loved. sing to them and dance crazy just to make them smile.
Yeni also is an experienced massage therapist that has worked with bodybuilders ( so they can heal faster) as well as chiropractors. Yeni has always cared about others and has a big heart. This was very important to Starr as she needed someone that she could trust and had the same drive and passion as her. It's so important to both of them to run HGBDATA the way they do. Once her and her husband got married, what should of been the happiest time of their life turn into sheer horror due to HG.
After going through Hyperemesis Gravidarum the first time she wanted to help other mothers and that is how Yeni and Starr met. Yeni had a little girl the same month and year as Starr. A few years later she had a little boy as well. Two kids is more than enough as it took a huge toll on her physically, mentally and emotionally. Yeni has spoken about the aftermath of Hyperemesis Gravidarum and is a voice for moms who end up with PPD and PPA. It is a hard subject to speak about, however Yeni and Starr have the same goals, passion and joy of helping other mothers and their unborn babies. It's important to Yeni to help every mom out there or struggling in the aftermath.
Together Starr and Yeni are the voice of HG and the aftermath. HGBDATA will help any mother that needs to seek help and treatment for HG!
Being a support sister and HG crisis volunteer is important to Yeni. Saving moms and their babies from the hell she went through and making a difference in the Hyperemesis Gravidarum community is at the top of her priorities. Everyday, Yeni and Starr help moms all over the wor
Starr Andrews Strong HG Activist is one of the most influential, inspirational HG moms and activist of her time.. As an influential speaker, she advocates for all 3 aspects of HG. Starr passion to educate the world, medical professionals, mothers and their families while still being sick is her drive and passion of who she is today.
Starr is an influential speaker and, educator in the medical community to bridge the gap with patients and doctors. As public figures Starr and Robert are the voice of HG. Everyday is a battle in the hell of the aftermath. Starr and her husband Robert educate at medical conferences, in person and video presentations that all patients are not textbook.
Starr focuses on all 3 aspects of HG. However, the long-term damage of having poor care can do to a mother and their babies, children and even their husbands, boyfriends , and caretakers is a hard pill to swallow. .
10 years ago no one talked about the aftermath. If you did you were tainted and bullied to shut your mouth. I knew at this point being gained up on and bullied that I had two choices, walk away or stand up to the women who bullied me , bashed me and really tried to tear me down mentally, emotionally and physically . Starr said "if they are doing this to me then who else are they doing it too?" I broke the stigma on the aftermath of HG and proud of it.
I got my start with a foundation called the Ayden Rae Foundation / Vanessa Pack took me under her wing and made me who I am today.
I know first-hand the impact that poor- care and lack of education has on these women that have Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) I know how long the agony and hell, HG is and can cause in the aftermath to a mom and her child. It can affect the caretaker as well . The lack of care during pregnancy and in the aftermath can shatter your life. Whats heartbreaking, is these women are told once they have their baby they will be "back to normal again. ” she explains. “I see moms thinking they are crazy because the aftermath of HG s not what they hope for, nor what they were told to expect after.. These women are left with anger, sadness, confusion and lost. The thoughts of why didn't no one believe me ? Why didn't I get better care? The aftermath is the dark side of what poor care and starving to death during your whole pregnancy can do. These women are told once they have their baby they will be normal again. Sadly this is not how it works in real life. They Go into the hospital all the time with no idea as to what is about to happen, and it’s terrifying for them.
Even 10 years later my health is deteriorating due to HG. I was really sick with HG and my care was awful and my daughter and I are paying that price everyday. Starr's husband is her rock and their love is their lifetime movie. There are days I am so sick and bedridden due to my chronic pain, Dysautonomia , Cyclic vomiting syndrome, Gastroparesis and everything else my husband cares for me daily. My dressing changes for my central line, my hydration and IV medications I am so thankful for such a wonderful man in my life.
I made a commitment at that point that I wanted to try and do something to change that.” There was no accidental overnight Instagram explosion for me. Instead, I approached it head on and hustle my butt off with hard work, my dedication to educate the world with becoming a keynote speaker in my field on chronic illness and HG, especially the aftermath. My passion to educate the medical community, and everyone who has been affected by HG , the aftermath can be even harder for some women. I never wanted anyone to suffer the way I did. I broke the stigma of the aftermath, I am so blessed to all the families we have helped over this past decade.

HG Before During and the Aftermath was founded in 2011 by Starr Andrews Strong HG Activist. Starr Andrews Strong wanted every women of child bearing age to know what HG was, and to fight for their care. The Strong's who are still fighting HG in the aftermath , never wanted any of family to go through the hell they have and do daily. felt the desire to write a book due to her severe HG pregnancy experience and wanted to share how she overcome the odds. Starr suffered from HG severely; without the support of her husband (who gave her the strength to fight and not give up on herself or their baby) she wouldn't have survived. Starr did not want other mothers to suffer, the way she did due to the lack of care she received. It's so imperative that you get aggressive medical care ASAP to prevent your HG getting worse. Going through HG and having to try to put their lives back together was not an easy task.
Starr and Yeni have multiple HG groups on Facebook. HGBDATA is our main group. HGBDATA covers all 3 aspects of HG: before, during and the aftermath. We also have a group for fathers going through HG with their wife's or girlfriends, we have a group for the aftermath of our children. We also have a group where moms and dads can get support together.
HG is a life-threatening pregnancy condition that can kill you and your unborn child. One out of 3 babies do not make it to a live birth.
One night, Starr laid on the bathroom floor; too weak to move or to speak but only to vomit blood and stomach bile. Starr promised herself and her unborn baby daughter that if they made it, if they were to survive these 9 months of hell, she would educate the world on what Hyperemesis Gravidarum is and to speak publicly how HG is not morning sickness, it's beyond. Starr promised herself if any HG mother needed support she would be there for them. This is how HGBDATA was founded by Starr Andrews Strong. Starr is and has been a support sister to many HG mothers who have it currently or suffering in the aftermath. Starr and her team help thousands of mothers know they are not alone. They are there to give support and find resources to help each mom. Every mom seeking help is taken under Starr’s wing. Many of our volunteers are moms who Starr gave support to during their pregnancy.
Starr was left to feel alone after having her daughter. She was still very sick with nausea and vomiting, sick with severe-chronic-fatigue and chronically weak after HG. The medical doctors did not help her at all.
Starr was left sick with no answers by the multiple doctors she visited because she been sick off and on her whole life. The name of our Organization has meaning, as our life before HG was different, during HG as we are robbed of a normal pregnancy. The aftermath you are left without needing physical mental and emotional health care that is not offered to an HG mother. Medical doctors expect you to be fine and move on. Many HG mothers are left with PTSD, PPD, and PPA, along with many other things such as decayed teeth from chronic vomiting and malnutrition. Starr and her team members hopes are to change the way the media and doctors and the world, see HG.
Currently Starr and her co-director Yeni hope to have the book released by the end of 2018, early 2019. We are working very hard to make the book be the success it needs to be to save life's.
