Case Study: HER Foundation

The HER (Hyperemesis Education & Research) Foundation is a nonprofit that provides support, groundbreaking research, advocacy, and education on hyperemesis.

The Client

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.

The Approach

The HER foundation aims is to provide support and education mothers with HG, a pregnancy disease marked by rapid weight loss, malnutrition, and dehydration due to unrelenting nausea and/or vomiting. Their biggest challenges include sharing research findings and important information with mothers who are often too sick to read through dense information packages about their illness. They offer online support via facebook groups or Instagram pages which is a tedious task for their staff to keep track of their thousands of followers.

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."

"I think it’s absolutely amazing, a perfect way to get more people to understand HG all around from all aspects."
