A new healthcare center in Central Jersey has opened to offer much-needed relief to pregnant women experiencing severe nausea and vomiting.

Harmonia Healthcare, a specialty women’s health platform focusing on underdiagnosed, undertreated and otherwise dismissed diseases that affect women, opened its first center in Red Bank this week, with another planned for New York City in the fall. The focus is on hyperemesis gravidarum, which is such severe vomiting that it can cause weight loss and excessive ketones in the urine and blood.

Harmonia offers outpatient care and established partnerships with patients, OB/GYNs, midwives, doulas, and other healthcare and pregnancy support professionals. Other treatments include medication and vitamin infusion, electrolyte replacement plans, prescription management, bloodwork, and telehealth assistance.

Harmonia’s Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Marlena Fejzo received the TIME 100 Health Award on the day of the opening in recognition of her groundbreaking research on the disease.

“My personal experience with HG and the frustration with being unheard and blamed by my doctors is what motivated me to discover GDF15, the hormone responsible for hyperemesis gravidarum,” says Fejzo, who earlier this year was also named one of TIME’s Women of the Year.

The economic cost of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy (NVP) in the United States totals over $1.7 billion per year—or $2.2 billion when adjusted for inflation—with ER visits being a significant contributor to this amount, according to stats provided by Harmonia. One in 4 women need meds to treat NVP, and on average miss 23 days of work per year.

“HG is the leading cause of hospitalization in the first half of pregnancy, but Harmonia is implementing a proven care model that has shown a 95% reduction in ER visits and a 90% decrease in the total cost of care,” says Co-Founder and President Leslie Gautam.

Currently, Harmonia’s services are available to patients in New Jersey. If you are trying to get pregnant, are pregnant or are suffering from severe nausea and vomiting or HG, contact Harmonia Healthcare; no referrals are required. The Red Bank location is at 21 E. Front St., Suite 300; headquarters are located at 555 Madison Ave., Suite 11D, New York. For more information, call 732-538-5149.
