Every woman hopes for a healthy and happy pregnancy. But for some, pregnancy is a living hell.
Many women suffer from "morning sickness," but can you imagine NINE MONTHS of constant vomiting with NO food or drink whatsoever, except by I.V. line?
Any nausea or vomiting in pregnancy is miserable. However, Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness, can be LETHAL.
In a powerful mix of poetry and prose, author Jenna Schmitt takes you through 40 harrowing weeks of Hyperemesis pregnancy. Her tale is one of pure survival in the face of agonizing odds. In particular, the response from high-risk pregnant women, their families, and doctors has been both positive and powerful: finally, someone understands how they feel!
